Who hates student loan debt, but loves sex?

Yeah, me too! 

Before my interview with Shannon McNay and Erin Wiley, I didn't realize how these two topics were so intertwined.

Erin is a Marriage & Family Therapist and Shannon is a student loan expert from Student Loan Hero. These two professionals conducted a new research study about the correlation between student loan debt, relationships and sex.  

The findings were quite revealing and we’re diving into those results today on the show.

What are we covering today?

Erin, Shannon and I discuss:

  • Top level results from this revealing survey on relationships, sex and debt
  • Recommendations for overcoming student loan debt as a couple
  • Our personal experiences with student loan debt and our relationships

As they say, knowledge is power. Let’s get all these facts straight so we know how to improve our finances, our relationships and our sex life.
