Yes. If you are married and your spouse has bad credit, you inherit that bad credit and depending on the state, you can inherit half the debt if you divorce. * No, debts incurred before marriage do not affect a new spouse's credit report even in CP states. Problems could arise however, if the couple apply for a joint line of credit such as a mortgage.

The only way it could possibly affect the former spouse's credit is if you are including debt in your BK that the spouse may be jointly obligated on; regardless of who was responsible for that debt in the divorce decree.

When you get married and you have good credit and your spouse has bad credit does your spouse affect your credit at all?

If you trying to buy a house together, yes, his credit will be taken into consideration and you may have to pay a higher mortgage rate. If you are trying to buy anything together because you need to consider his salary you may have problems. But just cause you are married to him does't automatically affect your credit. But he could potentially harm your credit if he defaults on any loans while you are married. Being married alone makes you accountable for what he does during your marriage in many cases.

If my wife applies for a credit card will it affect your credit score?

No, it won't affect my score, she's not my wife. Just kidding. Credit may be obtained individually (even in community property states) by law. Therefore your spouse can apply without you, meaning that your information and your social security number (by which you would be reported to the credit agencies) are nowhere on the application and you will not sign the agreement. If this is how she applies, it will not affect your score.

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.
