Getting Married – No Problem: This Company Will Pay for It. You Only Have to Pay It Back If You Get Divorced.
Getting married can cost you an outrageous amount of cash. But what if it was free?
When I got married we payed for most of it ourselves and never even thought of getting a bank loan or a loan from our parents.
These days more couples enter into marriage in debt all because of extravagant weddings.
A company in Seattle called SwanLuv will give you a loan for your wedding of up to $10,000. And you don't have to pay it back unless you get divorced. Then you owe them the money, plus interest.
The CEO of SwanLuv says they ran the numbers, and they CAN be profitable with this model. Quote, "It comes back to statistics. We have the right odds so we'll be okay." But he thinks the the odds aren't TOO crazy, so people will still bite.
When you apply, they'll evaluate how strong a couple you are. Then they base the amount of the loan and your interest rate off that. There will also be clauses like if the marriage ends because of abuse, the abuser has to pay the full amount.
If you're interested, you can pre-register at SwanLuv.com. They'll officially start giving out loans in March.
