No. You were not married to him. Keep your maiden name and keep your credit seperate. If it has been a long time out of the bankruptcy then his credit may not be that bad. In fact it is possible that it is better than yours. Call all three credit reporting agencies and have them send a free credit report for him and you to review. If you put him on the title of your home then it could hurt you. If you use his credit scores and they are low it could hurt you because they will take the middle score between you both.
