When the wife and I got out of school we pulled in 65K each and had a 200K mortgage and 120K in student loan debt and we still both drove nice cars and lived very comfortable because we spent responsibly, so I don’t know what this Forbes writer is talking about.

This is what's known as an "anecdote".

Your opinion is duly noted.

I recommend that you take the time to read the full article so that you can properly understood my comments.

When an annual household income of 200+K a year can’t afford payments on a 30 year term of 190K debt there’s much more wrong in that house than the author states. To say that student loans broke up the marriage is absurd and downright stupid.
