I didn't get past the first paragraph when it dawned on me that they were living beyond their means since they were helping their daughter with medical expenses, and she's most likely not a minor or the insurance would have covered her, and they owed taxes on a 401k withdrawal.

Or maybe she had a major medical issue - like organ transplant - that even when insurance covers can mean thousands in co-pays.
