In most cases, no. Per credit card company rules, the person who signed the back of the card is the only person allowed to use it, and if the signature on the back of the card doesn't match the signature on the charge draft, then an ID check is triggered and the retailer has to verify that the person presenting the card is the person named on the card. It has to be that person, not their husband/wife/etc. If the husband/wife is an authorized user on the wife/husband's account, the credit card issuer would issue an additional card for that authorized user.

If the husband owns the credit card and adds his wife to the card and he opens another credit account against that credit card does that affect her credit score?

If the husband adds the wife as a "joint" it will show on her credit report but will most likely not be counted against her if she tried to apply for a loan. If the husband adds the wife as an "authorized user" it will not even show on her credit report because she has no legal obligation to pay the credit card bills, but she has the right to use the card.
