Student Loans Causing Divorce

Which is why you never marry anyone with student loans.

How much you want to bet whose student loans are the issue causing the divorce?

True, but deceptive article.
Over 60 (probably closer to 80)% of student loan debt is in the hands of women. For the simple reason: Men do not overwhelmingly go to college for worthless degrees (I hear some guy wrote a book about them) in "X" studies. Men also tend to more often than not pay out of pocket while working in school or go through military options.

I would wager, the 'real problem' the femi writer is expressing is: Many men have caught on to the "woman marrying me to pay off her student loan debts, only to divorce rape me once they are paid off" trick, and are now refusing (rightfully so) to cover the wife's pre-marriage debts, which would logically lead to the femi divorcing the man to go hunt for another sucker to hook.

As more and more men realize the scam, and refuse to trade an occasional romp with a pre-stretched used moist constriction device for a lifetime of slavery; you'll only see more of these articles "demanding" the government "do something" (translated:force men to pay for their bad decisions).

I'm currently training a new officer on my boat. Poor kid is newly married, getting ready to move to another state (for his wife's job, to help pay her student loans), and was telling us that his wife doesn't cook or do housework and doesn't want kids. Even so, his salary will jump over 6 figures in another 2-3 weeks when he finishes training. Much of this will go towards loans. Having just paid my own off (for a STEM degree I don't use) after 20 years, I am somewhat sympathetic.

I *might* offer to scoop this kid up as a mate on my boat. But in doing so, I will be dooming him to divorce. My wife is foreign-born, and a housewife, and we have a traditional marriage, despite my being gone so much. The other captain married a good girl from a farm in the midwest, whose only fault is that she gets pregnant every time she washes his drawers. There's no way this kid's marriage will survive two unsympathetic superiors.

I love it in the article where the author claims that student loans can't be avoided. Yes it can Ms. Dickler! One can choose NOT to go to college. Especially if he or she is going to major in a worthless humanity or liberal art. They could go to trade school or an affordable online college like Western Governors University instead. Hell, they would be financially better off flipping burgers or waiting tables than to go deep into student loan debt going to college in 2018.

Who's got the student loan debt ??

My 38 yr old son.... student debt = ZERO

My 37 yr old daughter-in-law.... student debt = $100K+

They have a 2 yr old son and are *years* away from ever being able to afford to buy a house. Heck, just the interest payments on her debt are equal to a good-sized mortgage payment let alone paying off the principle

The over/under bet on when they will divorce... 2022 [ when the kid is in school and she doesn't need him to work from home and do all the "Mr Mom" child care he currently provides ]

Like this is 'new news'? Hell my then wife and I did a prenup to protect ourselves since we both had student loans at the time, and that was 35 years ago. We both worked like dogs for three years to eliminate the loans.

The real crime is how tuition costs have climbed to the point that taking one is equivalent to indentured servitude.

This is very appropriate given the big kerfuffle over Lori Alexander's article about her advice to Christian women that they remain debt-free virgins, because that's what men like. My goodness, you would think the whole Internet exploded with rage over it.

Here is a website you can show to students who just want to learn general education courses for free without spending tuition. Then students can concentrate on the courses that already matter.Learn all this stuff in a few hours instead of weeks from a money hungry liberal professor. http://www.openculture.com
