Financial Overload

I am in desperate need of prayer. I am 25 years old, engaged to be married to the love of my life in August, and am completely drowning in student loan debt. I graduated from my University in 2009. Unfortunately, my family was not in a position to be able to pay for my education... so my dad took out everything in student loans. I never realized how much I would owe later on, and after college I struggled to find a good paying job. I now owe around $150,000 in student loans alone and I'm stressed everyday with this weight bearing on my shoulders. Now I have my fiance who is beyond stressed about this too and I'm terrified of the burden and stress I'm putting on him and our relationship. This is not going to go away, and neither of us make enough money to pay the $1,000 a month payments. If I don't pay them and go into default, not only will I ruin our financial futures, but also my parents as they are co-signers to my loans. I sincerely feel like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders and I don't know how to handle this or what to do. I just don't have that much money. I don't want to ruin my fiance and I's life together before it even starts. I would really appreciate your prayers for strength and for God to provide a way out of this mess. Thank you!!!!

You are in my prayers. Try to

You are in my prayers. Try to contact your loan serviced and request an income contingent. It means your loans will be based on your income. Please look into it.

Financial stress is very

Financial stress is very difficult especially in marriage, I would highly recommend you and your fiance taking a crown financial course together. My husband and I went through the course and helped us both to get a biblical perspective on money. it all belongs to God, we are just stewards of what is His.
