Like numerous same-sex partners, Eric Henry and Tom (he prefers to not make use of their final title for privacy), their partner of 3 years, were delighted once the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in support of wedding equality in June 2015.
Nonetheless, unlike the tens and thousands of partners whom headed to your altar into the wake associated with the court’s choice, the 2 whom are now living in Overland Park, Kansas, made a decision to place their wedding plans on hold.
The main explanation? Tom’s student-loan balance totaling significantly more than $300,000.
“He’s presently for an income-based repayment plan,” Henry says, “so he’d need to pay a lot more once my earnings ended up being factored in.”
