What do people think about the notion of paying for their kids' college educations? I don't have children -- yet -- and it's something I think about. Both my partner and I paid (well, we're still paying) for our bachelor's and master's degrees. Neither of our parents were able to pay tuitionI also paid for my own education, although my wife had here undergraduate education paid for. But I received financial aid based on family need - the only kid who gor more than me was an orphan. We've been blessed with careers that we enjoy that also pays well - my kid will not qualify for aid based on need. I feel an obligation to cover his undergraduate education, assuming he applies himself to his studies.Another piece of the question is that, when you are successful, you get to decide how to spend the money you've accumulated. We expect to retire comfortably in our mid 50's and afford a college education both. For us, this is the right combination of retiring early enough, enjoying life, and feeling good about our family.
