When you get married does your credit reflect on your spouse?

To answer your question: No, the credit of one spouse will not effect the credit of the other in any way. The only time the credit of one spouse will effect that of the other is when both open a joint loan, or joint credit account, in which case those specific accounts will be reported to both of your credit histories. That's it! :o)

Hope this answers your question.

the last answer is correct. I would just like to add that as a stay at home mother with a husband with bad credit, I am severly affected. His bad credit is 6-10 years old, my credit is immaculate. We can not get a car or a house on credit, we have to pay cash for everything. we can not use my "perfect" credit because I do not work. We can not get approved jointly, and he can not get approved alone because of his horrible credit(even though he makes more than 100,000 a year). If you marry into bad credit it does not affect your score, but it may affect your life.
