    Unfortunately, I have about $75k in student loans left from law school at an extremely low interest rate.  And a sizable mortgage and lease on my car.  But no credit card debt.

    We owe around 9k on our car & 1000 on credit. Oh & also about 3000 in medical bills (thanks diabetes.) & We put down 800 on our new living room suite & owe 500 on it if that counts but it doesn’t go towards our actually credit just our store credit.

    Nothing! I paid off my student loans earlier this year. It was my goal to get married debt free. Fiance has never had debt, lucky him.

    I had student loans and parents’ help for school.  I paid off my car and student loans so I’m debt free!

    I had to take out a $10000 student loan last year.  Other than that, no debt.

    @tinkerbee:  Don’t be depressed! We’re over 100k too. Fiance has 126k in student loans from grad school. I have about 30k for my student loans and credit card.

    I do not have any school loans or credit card debt but I owe about $10,000 on my car. However, it is a 0% APR loan so I barely classify it as debt.

    $83k in student loans.

    That’s it though- no credit card debt, the house is in FI’s name (although if we count that it’s closer to $250k in debt), no car loan, nothing.  And I’m on a payment plan where I’m looking at 9 more years, give or take, til they’ll forgive whatever I haven’t paid.

    Fiance has a small car loan, a couple small student loans, and some credit card debt we’re working to get out from under.  It’s really just the credit card debt that makes me crazy. I accept that life requires some level of debt sometimes, and without his car loan he wouldn’t have a car and without our student loans we wouldn’t have the jobs we have.  So that was all worth it.

    Debt free so far! A mixture of help from my family and my working crazy shifts means I have no university debt, no credit cards so no debt there. My Fiance has a bit from student loans but not much.
