Today, I got a date after being alone for the past 2 years. The girl who my friends set me up with began asking my monthly income, my current occupation, and asked if I have a credit card account. FML

Not necessarily, they may not have known she was like that, she could have been cool af around them. It is possible for someone to be an awesome friend but horrible once they put someone in the relationship-zone.

maybe not. maybe she wants someone with good credit and a job. not saying she needs to know his income, but you also don't want to get in deep and realize he's got no job and will later ruin your credit.

girls like her is why a lot of guys look at girls as gold diggers who just want a man to take care of them. i am sorry you got set up with that kind of girl.

My husbands credit and mine are still separate even after we got married. Either way, I don't think I would not marry someone based on their credit score. I had horrible credit as soon as I turned 18 because my mom bought me a gym membership when I was 14, but she never paid it off. Because it was under my name (even though I never signed anything), it automatically went on my credit. Thankfully I was able to fix it with relative ease but it was a pain in the ass to begin with. Just saying, you never know why their credit score may be low. Doesn't mean they aren't marriage material.

#48, Did you challenge the gym membership being on your credit report? My financial advisor told me you can do that when fraud is involved. I think you may have been able to have it removed since it was created for you when you were a minor and you didn't sign anything. Just wondering, if you don't mind me asking. I've got all sorts of stuff my ex husband opened on my credit report dragging my credit score down that I'm going to start challenging soon. If it goes through, and my financial advisor thinks it will, my credit score should rocket upwards.

I had horrible credit when I got married and in the last 20 years still improved both my income and credit led to marriage, not either party's credit worthiness!

What, 113? That's not true at all. I couldn't get the court to assign responsibility to my ex husband for the debts he took out in my name. And even if I could, it wouldn't matter anyway. The creditors would still be coming after me, not him, because the debts are in my name. I think the only time a partner's bad credit affects their partner is when they're buying a house together.

You and 113 are from two different countries :) might be that credit works differently there. Just a thought!
