I am fortunate to have a wonderful longtime partner (who, as an educator, knows all about small salaries), but I sometimes wonder what would happen if I lost my job and was looking for love — would I be marriage material (assuming I even wanted to marry again, that is, which I don’t), or even dateable? ); by virtue of my gender alone, yes — I would probably be viable relationship material.
Forty million of us have student loan debt so if you’re looking for love, you might have to be a little flexible when deciding if this kind of debt is on your no-go list.
If someone has this kind of debt, it’s not necessarily the worst thing in the world.
A lot of student loans have manageable interest rates.
If the rates are high, the loan can be consolidated and refinanced through a company like So Fi to a more manageable level.
We can overlook a lot in the name of love, the snoring, leaving the toilet seat up, beauty products multiplying on every bathroom surface. Not everyone agrees on matters of personal finance but there are some red flags that should be considered no go territory when it comes to merging your life, home and credit score. Or for those you are planning just to date casually.
These are questions to ask when you’re considering DTR.And to be honest, I’m finding that it isn’t such a difficult concept to grasp.So what is it, then, with the guys I end up dating?The Beatles had it right when they crooned “Money can’t buy me love.” For sure.It’s impossible to put a price tag on the important things in relationships. if opening his wallet to buy you a drink throws your date into an existential crisis, there’s a problem.That’s why the pro-marriage people have it all wrong when they say marriage will get low-income women out of poverty.
