Debt solution

I am never a person to judge a person's decision. But when a friend of mine was planning their weddings, and knowing their financial situations, I needed to voice out my opinion.

The guy is barely making enough for himself. His income is just a little above the minimum wage and he has been in and out of different jobs. The girl have a steady income but you can lose your job at any time too. I've learned that there is no such thing as a secured employment.

They both wanted a not-so-big wedding but nevertheless over 100 people. They even invited friends of their friends to their wedding. Not being practical at all. They had to take out a loan just to pay for the reception. And they took out the loan in the name of the girl, saying that if and when they can't pay it off and had to declare bankruptcy, his credit standing will not be affected at all.

I honestly don't know why people would go through the trouble of being in debt when they know that they will have a hard time paying it off. After my interfering with their decision, we sort of drifted apart.

It's a good thing that there are companies out there with Debt Management Plan to help people get out of debt.
