The value of a college degree has never been higher – at least in financial terms. Over the past decade, the cost of university education has risen three times faster than other school-related expenses. Most students finance at least some of that cost by taking out student loans, with the goal of having their investment pay off with higher earnings down the road.

But the truth is that paying off the loan is often harder than people can imagine even if they are already employed.

The statistic is, in fact, horrifying. Current U.S. Student Loan Debt is $1.53 Trillion with 1 in 4 Americans having student loan debt.

Maybe that's why multiple people desperately hope someone will help them.

Should you partner help you?

For instance, one man took to psychologist's online column to complain that his fiancee doesn't want to help him pay his student loan off. The couple, who are both medical professionals are in love but the financial problem makes things a bit harder. While the man has $230,000 amount of loans and his beloved one has none, he expects her to support him financially after they're getting married.

"We’ve fought several times about whether or not she will help to pay these loans off when we’re married."

The woman, however, believes that his loans are his own responsibility. Although the man understands her, he, however, intimates that this attitude hurts him, saying:

"I can’t help feeling a little hurt that she’s not willing to help at all, since it will be a major factor in our married finances."

Well, it's a pity that people have to encounter this kind of problems in their lives even before getting married.
