You're a college student making $10/hr, part time real estate person AND credit card collector, busy busy busy.Originally posted by: Redhotjrm
Read my other post. I make $10/hr because I am still in college... I'm 20. I'll be graduating in two years and I also do real estate on the side. Don't you think we already know that finances are the major cause of divorce? We don't have to keep up with the Jones'.... we are very mature, responsible, and our relationship has a foundation built on love and Christianity. What experience do you have with predicting future marriages? I am a credit card collector... I have people tell me all day long they are getting divorces b/c their spouse is not paying their bills on time. Once we get out of credit card debt, we aren't using credit cards anymore except for mileage use... (using credit card like checking account... pay all bills, make all purchases, etc with card to get miles, then pay it off with one check at end of month).Originally posted by: Rudee
Agreed. Strangely enough, these two deserve each other. #1 cause of divorce is related to finances, and I can predict this couples future. Not good....Originally posted by: waggy

I won't be in the hole by having a 10k wedding... we are saving cash for it. And believe me, I would honestly have a $69.95 drive through wedding if I could, but my ol' lady wouldn't settle for that. Besides, I'll only do it once! I had the SC2 first... then she bought one. And then, I talked her into getting a Civic... so I'm not the whipped one =)
didnt you think about what you were doing before you signed? why in the blue hell are you thinking of spending $10k on a wedding when you are so far in debt? do you understand what happens if they repo the cars?
you both are NOT ready for marriage. you need to do some growing up and understand how the real world works. while $10/hour is good in some places it is NOT enough to have so much debt and then throwing a 10k wedding on it. bah
I am starting to learn that some Anandtechers really get off on the "holier than thou" theory here, but fortunately I've owned everyone so far in this thread... so please refrain from trying that tactic again. I made a mistake and I sought advice. I received good advice along with a larger reception of BS.
If you ever manage to payoff both cars (legally) I would recommend buying a cheap econobox, like a Hyundai Elantra GLS or GT.
