Not really related to student loans but bear with me I will get to that...
At a family function yesterday, S-I-L was talking about her daughter and soon to be son-in-law. Talking about their upcoming nuptials and of course what they are going to do afterward for money, home, etc.
This couple has been an item since grade school. I kid you not. I think 6th and 7th grade is when they met. No breaks to see other people or anything like that. So when it came time for high school graduation and both were good athletes. She got a full ride athletic volleyball scholarship to a Missouri Valley Conference school. He got a full ride athletic baseball scholarship to a school in Florida. They couldn't bear the thought of being apart, so they both turned down their scholarships and enrolled together at the local university campus. She graduated with a bachelors degree in do you want fries with that (Psychology) and he is about to be dismissed for academic performance after his 3rd year.
So when SIL was asking her daughter how they planned to make ends meet and address the student loans they took out to pay for nothing to show for it education, the daughter replied they can either work for the government or just work for minimum wage for 10 years and pay nothing for their student loans and they will be forgiven. "This is how everyone does student loans now" is what she said.
