Being in debt can cause mental stress, physical stress and marital stress.
Michael Lacy and his wife Taylor were under marital stress when their debt caused them more problems than they were prepared for. After some honest discussions and hardcore planning, they managed to pay off all their debt and come out stronger as a couple.
There’s a movement taking place amongst our generation. A movement that says, “Don’t work at a job you hate just because it pays well.”.

With our country currently drowning in $1.5 Trillion of student debt, it’s fair to say we have a big problem on our hands. This problem is hitting home as well. Couples are delaying marriage, delaying having a baby and even strategically getting divorced to lessen the burden of their student loans.
If you’re listening to this, you may just be one of the many Americans that’s feeling like they are completely under water with these loans.
Well today, I have a very special guest who’s going to talk with us about our options for getting rid of these loans the right way. Travis Hornsby from Student Loan Planner shares how refinancing and student loan forgiveness may be our tickets to student debt freedom.
On this podcast, we often talk about the importance of a true financial partnership with your spouse. When you’re on the same page about money, your marriage feels balanced. You have less stress, fewer money fights and it just feels better.

Today, I’ve invited my good friend Elle Martinez to join us on the show again. This is our first repeat guest so you know she’s awesome.
From the expo floor of FinCon17, I’m speaking with Award Winning Personal Finance Author Erin Lowry about her new book Broke Millennial. Her goal is to help young adults to stop acting rich and get their financial life together.
One of the major topics in the book is getting financially naked with your partner before marriage. Given the importance of this crucial money conversation, Erin and I intently focus on that topic during our chat today.
Marriage is a beautiful thing. You get a best friend for life that loves you, laughs at your bad jokes and tells you when you have one of those stray hairs in your nose.
Your spouse is your friend, your partner-in-crime and that person who simply tells you like it is. It’s all in the vows, right? You’re supported in good times and bad, in sickness and health, for all our days on earth.
