Latecomer: But AHHH this is my story too! Down to me moving away for grad school and traveling, him being a hospital tech taking night classes and slowly paying off the debt. We're getting married in August, and I can't wait until the ending is ours as well. This just gave me goosebumps!
@whateverlolawants I think the original article is a good (if extreme) lesson to hear - what seems incredibly weird are all the comments indicating that this chain of events is somehow expected/ok, just unfortunate. A 22-year old college graduate is not a child! My distaste also probably has to do with current events - my fiance amassed huge amounts of credit card debt in the same after-college period, and though I knew it existed I just recently figured out just how bad the situation is. Ugh.
