The Moneyist: I am about to inherit $1.75 million—should I buy a house in cash and pay off my wife’s student loans?

Dear Moneyist,

I am 27 years old, recently married, employed full time for a New York State school district as a teacher, rent an apartment, and have about $25,000 in government student loans from my undergraduate and master’s degrees. In the next six months I will inherit $1.5 to $1.75 million dollars.

I plan to purchase a house (and a puppy) with my wife. The house may cost about $300,000 to meet our needs and ideas for growing our family into a family of five. My wife has about $100,000 in government/personal loans from her studies as a registered nurse, but because we both came from no money, and have been dating since college before we were legally old enough to have a beer, I have committed to paying off her loans and trust her financially.
