If the lender does give the loan (or credit card) it will be at a higher interest rate using both borrowers than for the 680 borrower alone.

When most credit scores are computed, there is no difference in type of late payment at the 30 day point. Whether it be a mortgage payment, auto loan payment, personal loan payment or credit card payment, the impact is going to be generally the same (unless one has a record of late payments). The credit score will drop from 25 to 50 points for the missed payment and it will take about a year to get MOST of those points back (two years is generally the "missed payment" cutoff for most scoring systems).
