    I don’t even like to think about how much money we owe the student loan company…. it just makes me physically ill. Though, he does have a fair bit more than I do, which is impressive.

    I have more debt than him since he was able to live at home in grad school and I had to borrow some of my living expenses. We’re paying mine off faster, though, since they are higher interest, and they’re getting close to even. We don’t have any other debt right now (and when we have a mortgage, it will be split evenly ;).

    Sadly, its me. CC debt and Student Loans. He has some CC but no loans. And he has great credit while me, not so much.

    I have more debt in every respect – undergrad, grad school, plus emergency credit card stuff.  (Sidenote: never let your chihuahua swallow a sewing needle.  Surgery is expensive).

    Meanwhile, my little stinker of a fiance had undergrad all paid for (thank you, college trust fund, it must be nice to have you…) AND has more than enough money saved up for grad school when he ends up going that route.  And zero credit card debt.

    I have no debt (unless you count what I have on my credit card and pay off completely each month).  My fiance had some student debt, but we just paid if off about a month ago.  He had almost enough money to cover it, I gave him a little bit so we weren’t paying interest on any of it.  Now he’s making money and I’m still a student.

    Thankfully, neither of us have debt! Definitely happy about that.

    He just finished a masters and has 40k in student loans but has no credit cards or any other kind of debt.  I only owe 7k in student loans, but another $1,000 in credit cards. I went to a state school and have paid a lot of mine off…he went to a private school. The 40k was for the masters only, his parents paid his bachelors.  Yowzas!

    I have more debt.  I have about 10,000 left on my student loans.  Hopefully going to knock that down quite a bit this year.  Then we have a fifth wheel but I think of that as our debt since we picked it out together…I think we owe around 20,000 on it.  He had paid for his truck right before I met him and my car was paid off last year but I’m going to be getting a new one in a couple months….but we’ll just pay cash for that. I guess that’s not too bad. Oh, and we have a cc but we pay it off monthly.

    We have both hacked away at our debt like crazy over the last year. We are planning on buying a house next April, and want to be completely debt free and have our credit scores cleaned up considerably by then. It sort of sucks because we are living like paupers right now and trying to plan a wedding, but in the end I am sure it will be worth it.
