At 28 Sally contracted her first STD. It was a long and painful process to get over and she’s doing much better (thank-you for asking). One thing she learned from her experience is that prevention is better than cure. Surprisingly, STDs are more common than you think!
“Sexually transmitted debt” is when you become liable for your partner’s debt as a result of your marital or de-facto relationship, rather than a conscious acceptance of the debt. It can arise in a relationship in a number of contexts, for example, when you provide an “all monies” mortgage or if you guarantee your partner’s loan. STDs commonly arise when one party incurs debts during the relationship (for example by not paying their taxes, by gambling large sums of money or through bad investments) and the other party becomes liable for a share of those debts.
