The deal with my parents was that I'd do the same for my kid. Which I will. They also know that I will take care of them if needed just like I know they will take care of me if ever needed. It's called family.Good parents look out for their kids and hopefully those good kids will look out for Mom and Dad when the time comes.
Yeah...where I escaped any college debt of my own I sure got to pay the ex-wifes. Luckily I was a LT on max flight pay by then.It stressed me just to read this but p3wife has a good point - the debt is combined in marriage:
Diasy - you're doing the right thing by your kids. They're lucky to have the parents they do.
