First of all, if you are in college right now, please do everything in your power to keep your student loans to a minimum! I really wish that I didn’t have to experience the story below. Never having that debt would have been much more delightful, for me anyway.
My wife and I had recently gotten married and moved into an amazing rental complex in South Florida. There was a work-out facility, some tennis courts, and a gorgeous pool. It was heavenly, that is, until the bills started coming in the mail.
Somehow it had slipped our minds that once we graduated from college, we had to start paying back our student loans. Between my wife and I, we had $18,000 in student loans plus a vehicle that we owed $7,000 on. Yep, that was a total of $25,000 in debts!
