My wife is a physician assistant. We moved in with her parents when her mom got cancer to a) help out her parents financially and b) live cheaply to pay off her grad school student loans. We paid off about $88,000 in the last 12 months, excluding interest and $17,000 for her "new" car. Her stepdad, who is tremendously difficult to live with, has also threatened to kick us out of the small house multiple times. I work from home and I'm now confining myself to our bedroom pretty much 7 days per week to avoid ruffling any feathers. Can't wait to finish off the loans and get out of here, and into our own apartment, around the end of the year. Then we can start working toward building our custom home.
