I've been in debt...I've had to file bankruptcy. Its was my own fault. I do not expect anyone to pay for my mistakes. Now I understand there are different situations with different people. Bankruptcy is not forever. What you do afterwards is what really matters. You file to remove your debt because basically you have no other option. Starting over is not a bad thing. But if someone else is paying for you t...

It all depends on how the debt was caused. One of the most frequent is a Catastrophic Medical Event and that's all it takes.

And you are right. I do understand those situations as well. However, how do you choose as to whose catastrophic event is more important than the other? I'm not meaning to sound cold or heartless. I've been in debt due to my own poor choices and also have had piles of medical bills on top of the original debt. I have 3 children, one of which is autistic with severe ADHD and severe anxiety.

Considering that being in debt is a CHOICE, I'll give THEM a dollar if they give me $5 for my new boat fund.

Sorry, but I am not responsible for the bad financial choices people make.
Yes

Not always the case. Many do not choose car crashes, cancer, employer closing down on them, etc. There is also buying a car or home, not easy for most to do without DEBT. I suggest staying on topic. Getting out of debt is a good idea for anyone in it. Would you put a dollar toward THAT alone, no other considerations for this poll.
No

Kind of a "harsh" attitude, you have. Damien is correct, many people acquire debts through no fault of their own, besides the ones mentioned, there are also times when an elderly parent needs our assistance financially, medically or with living arrangements. Most of us would willingly take on these debts as it would be the RIGHT thing to do, and that alone is hardly a "bad financial choice".
No

No, not really. And I don't want to know the details either. Other people's financial concerns are not interesting to me, one way or the other. I don't burden other people with my financial concerns.
