Spouse opening new credit card accounts

Dear Experian,

I’m pretty much sick of credit cards, and I’m paying off all my accounts. My wife agrees with me but opens new ones whenever she feels like it. Is there a way to keep her from doing that?

What happens to a spouse’s credit report when they die

Dear Experian,

When a spouse dies what happens to their credit information? Can it be purged or removed with a copy of the death certificate?
