I’m 36 years old, and I have been single for four years and finally met an amazing guy. We have so much in common and are completely head over heals in love with each other. It’s been almost a year. We just recently started talking about moving in together.
The other night he told me that he has just under $50,000 in debt (not good debt like a mortgage). He was keeping it a secret because he didn’t know how to tell me and was concerned I might walk away if I knew. I’m extremely good with my savings and planning for retirement and my future.
This has thrown me for a loop. I love this man and am feeling devastated because I don’t know if I want to start a life with someone who is so far in debt and has no savings or plans for his future. What should I do? I haven’t met someone I love so much before, but I am very concerned with his financial situation and in the past this would be a deal breaker for me. Do I stay with him?
