Some people are lazy in certain areas of their life, and that laziness can get them into trouble. This couple had a physician as one of the members, so he certainly had the intelligence level to understand any loan document. They just chose laziness and not to read them. I don't feel sorry for them or that they were "taken" somehow.

IIFC from "Millionaire Next Door" it's not out of the ordinary for doctors to not be so great at their own personal finances. Not sure if it's because they're very busy keeping up with the medical field in general - or just passionate about medicine but not personal finance. But based on that, I didn't find this article all that surprising.
