I'm really confused about this? Are you really asking what happens if OP gets in the position of having an income that let's him pay off his loans more easily and implying that this would be a bad thing?

I assumed it was sarcasm when I got to the third "god forbid." If not, then I'm afraid the only thing god forbade was that post making any sense whatsoever.
