The fact is that my Becky and I are ahead of where most couples in our situation are. I am 28 right now. I went to UT Dallas and got a degree in Computer Science and then I moved to Austin and got a really good job working for a major corporation in their IT department. Becky is a registered nurse who works for the UT medical school. She is about a year and a half younger than me. We already have a pretty decent little house, but we are looking at larger austin homes because we are planning upon having a family real soon. This house was just a temporary measure and we knew that we would be able to easily afford to pay the mortgage on it.
