When I got married my husband put everything in his name (utilities, house, etc.). I still have two credit cards in my name. How can I maintain good credit scores going forward with limited items in my name?
I’m getting married next week and am wondering if I should take my husband’s last name. His credit is not quite good, while mine is very good. If I take his last name, what will happen to my credit history? Should I have a joint account with my husband? What is the best way for me to protect myself from having problems from changing my last name?
I would like to get married to a man who filed for bankruptcy. I have great credit, and he has a new slate. Will it wreck my credit even if we keep our finances separate?
