No, on your credit report you can see all of your names, sometimes even including nick-names. Basically, your married name will simply be reflected as an alias. Your name will always be your given name followed by your maiden name. Marriage does not change who you are, it just gives you a "second" name.

No. When you get married, your credit reports are the same as they were when you were single. The actions you take WHILE married, however, may influence your credit score. In States that are considered "Community Property" or "Marital Property" (there are nine in the US), the spouse must always be included on any new loans. Accordingly, if your spouse decides to apply for credit, your credit score will be a component of whether or not your spouse is approved. Also, if your spouse does not pay that bill on time or skips a payment, your credit report will be impacted.
