    Not all. We get student loan without riba over here , Alhamdulillah :)
    The only time we have to pay riba is IF we leave the country without paying the loan off first.

    That debt is a bit to heavy, that is multi year debt to pay off if you are working to take care of family plus the debt. Ideally I would not enter into it.

    I gave up certain things in life because I don't want a debt hanging over my head, I prefer to stay away from it.

    Depends on the amount I have. If I was extremely wealthy, of course, I wouldn't mind. :)

    The student loan is something from prior to marriage. If you want a better example then it would be the husband buying a car on finance prior to marriage and the question would be should the wife use her assets to assist him to pay it off.
    But what if her assets were amassed prior to marriage. ....... so even spending in the present is beyond her haqq!

    I think it's a bit unfair on the husband but obviously he should help if she's struggling to pay it off,
    it's a very hot topic, I wouldn't say yes straight away if I was to pay for my husband's loan

    My earlier post was just a thought. ...

    ...although I personally wouldn't expect anyone to pay off any of my debt if I had it.

    Let's flip it around. ......if the sister has assets of her own, her own halaal income etc etc

    Would he have any qualms about her using that money on the family and family home?

    Arent you supposed to share the good AND bad?

    IF the husband is okay with wife working, then she can pay off her own loan,
    But IF he insists she doesn't work after marriage, then he needs to pay it off for her.

    In the US, there is no running away from student loans. So, she will have to work to pay it off, or an agreement with her husband. If they don't they can seize bak accounts, tax refunds, etc. It can be a nightmare. So choose wisely if you want a student loan (in the US) .

    depends on how big the loan is I guess and also what she studied.

    I was wondering about this.

    If you married a sister and she had a student loan, would you help her pay it off?

    Keep in mind many sisters take such a loan to go to university and then get married afterwards and so won't be working. This means they won't be able to clear this debt and will be stuck with it.
