Sorry I couldn’t help it

This is from a letter sent to an advice column on Marketwatch. I offer no further comment, just read the first paragraph 🤪

Dear Moneyist,

I’m a 28-year-old male marrying a 30-year-old woman. I have racked up about $100,000 in student-loan debt by earning two graduate degrees. Luckily, I obtained a finance job with unlimited earning potential, just heavy work hours, so I am not too worried about repaying my loans if the Biden administration doesn’t assist.

However, my fiancée does not have any student loans and doesn’t have as high an earning ceiling as I do, but she has a heavy spending problem, whereas I am a saver by nature. We are getting married next year, and will be purchasing a home next year as well. Both expenses will be covered by us with limited assistance from our parents.

  1. Unless they can find some common ground, their marriage is doomed to failure. Unfortunately, love alone is not enough for a successful marriage.

  2. Commenting on paragraph two.
    There was a movie a while back called “A Bronx Tale.” In it, the father (played by Robert Di Nero) tells his son to think with the big head and not with the small head. Obviously, this advice seeker didn’t see the movie.
