My son is moving off to a major metropolis this summer with his Girlfriend. She'll be attending grad-school at an expensive private university. She's not getting a ton of financial support from the University.
Talking with her newly appointed councilor at the college, and others, she's learned that if she or my son were to get a job with the school they would be eligible for substantially reduced tuition costs - this benefit supposedly extends to the employees spouse.
The gf is convinced that my son will get a job with the college and marry her. Son is not too keen on marriage at this point. He is apping for jobs with there but says even if he does get one he'll not get married before fall term.
The tuition savings, if one of them did work for the institute and they did marry, would be upwards of $25k/year. That's pretty substantial.
Does it justify a convenience marriage?
Edited to be more like jeopardy.
