My fiance and I (getting married this week) have some debt that we are working toward paying off. We should have it completely gone in 1.5 years, and plan on purchasing a home at that time.
As of right now, we have about $ 1000/month that is left-over money that we put toward debt.
My fiance does not want to even think about having a baby until we are 100% debt free besides cars and a home.
Is this realistic, or is the old saying true? If you wait until you are “ready” and financially “set”, will you end up never having kids?
If you think being out of debt is the answer, does anyone have advice on how to get there?
