The Moneyist: Should two people with $1 million in debt even consider getting married?

Dear Moneyist,

My girlfriend and I make about the same income monthly of approximately $19,000. I have gone through a divorce and several downturns in the economy as an entrepreneur so I have $55,000 in credit-card debt and $34,000 in IRS debt, plus a car and mortgage. My gross income is approximately $225,000, so well within my abilities to pay down my debt in a year or so.

‘She’s so focused on medicine that she has forgotten about her financial obligations and defaulted on her loan.’

My concern is actually my girlfriend who makes as much as I do, but her medical school debt is through the roof at $350,000.
