People in this age group don’t mind marrying someone with debt
With student debt so high, it’s likely at least one partner will be carrying extra baggage.
Millennials appear to be more willing than other generations to take a spouse for better or for worse, in sickness or in debt.
Older generations are more likely to refuse to marry someone with a lot of debt: 70% of people 65 and older said they would say no, compared with 45% of people 18- to 24-years-old, according to a study from legal-services site Avvo, which surveyed more than 2,300 U.S. adults. A person’s willingness to wed someone saddled with debt corresponded roughly with their age, with older people showing more reluctance.
