Being student-loan-free means I'm old. As in, I should have my life figured out by now. I should be married (which I'm not), have kids (which I don't) and know what I want to do career-wise (again, I don't). I'm almost 29 and don't know what the rest of my life will look like.
If you have an ex -- which most of us do -- you've probably received the "You're better off without them," speech from a friend. But what if the breakup left you better off in unexpected ways? Say, richer?
