Our Friends Won’t Start a Family Because of Student Loan Debt

Our friends won’t start a family because of student loan debt. It’s true. The other night, my husband caught up with one of his guy friends who’s lived with his now wife near New York City for more than a few years now. He told him that they aren’t starting a family because of her massive student loan debt.

There’s something seriously wrong with that. They both have great jobs (thanks to a good, yet clearly expensive) education. But, they work in an industry that requires them to live in or near big city. They are able to pay their (I’m sure somewhat higher than average) rent and bills each month, no problem. But due to massive student loan debt, there’s not enough money left over to save up to buy a house or think about committing to big daycare bills. That’s maddening to me!

#modernbocadad and I are some of the lucky ones. We both graduated from college debt-free. I know this isn’t the norm. Student loan debt has reached $1 trillion of debt among Americans and I refuse to let our daughter join that statistic.

I talked about this on the blog before the holidays. But, we officially have a plan in place to prevent massive student loan debt for our child thanks to Florida Prepaid.

How Florida Prepaid Helps You Avoid Massive Student Loan Debt

A Florida Prepaid College Plan allows families to prepay, on a monthly or lump-sum basis, the future cost of 1) college tuition, 2) specified fees and 3) dormitory housing. It’s a simple 1-2-3! When your child is ready for college, the plan pays the tuition and fees at any Florida College or State University. However, if your child attends an out-of-state college or private college, the plan will pay the same amount as it would pay at a public college or university in Florida. This is a win-win for parents!
