First comes love, then comes marriage — but where do credit and finances fit in? From the first few dates up to the exchange of rings and vows and beyond, your financial picture is a part of who you are, and the kind of life you can offer others a role in. As a relationship progresses, finances start to become more of the discussion. Learn when more and more couples are starting to talk dollars, cents and credit.

The language of love isn't exclusively about finances, but finances do play an increasingly important role in how your future can look.

The purpose of this question submission tool is to provide general education on credit reporting. The Ask Experian team cannot respond to each question individually. However, if your question is of interest to a wide audience of consumers, the Experian team may include it in a future post and may also share responses in its social media outreach. If you have a question, others likely have the same question, too. By sharing your questions and our answers, we can help others as well.

Personal credit report disputes cannot be submitted through Ask Experian. To dispute information in your personal credit report, simply follow the instructions provided with it. Your personal credit report includes appropriate contact information including a website address, toll-free telephone number and mailing address.

To submit a dispute online visit Experian's Dispute Center. If you have a current copy of your personal credit report, simply enter the report number where indicated, and follow the instructions provided. If you do not have a current personal report, Experian will provide a free copy when you submit the information requested. Additionally, you may obtain a free copy of your report once a week through April 2022 at AnnualCreditReport.
