Newlyweds swap vows promising to support each other in sickness and in health — and apparently in debt.
Three-quarters of engaged couples are going into the red to cover their wedding bills, according to a survey published in February by Student Loan Hero. The site polled 1,000 people getting married in the next 12 months.
For many borrowers, it's a five-figure burden: 16 percent of couples are taking on $10,000 to $19,999 in debt, while 11 percent are expecting to borrow $50,000 or more. (See chart below for a breakdown.)
