  • in some ways smart..however..i think that if you break off a relationship that was serious enough to get married over bad credit then there really wasnt that much love there to begin with.

  • I think it's a personal decision really.. I'm on my 2nd marriage. I went into both marriages with bad credit and both my husbands had good credit when we first got together... Now they both have bad credit..  hehe!

  • I think this is something that should have been discussed FAR before an engagement was entered into. For that reason, I think it's neither smart nor shallow, I think it's stupid. If you are about to walk down the aisle, finances should have been discussed far ahead of time.

  • Of course you would want to fix bad credit, but i would NEVER leave my fiance if he had bad credit. I love him way too much.

  • Shallow on both ends. It would be better to fix the credit while prolonging the engagement.

  • If she did it because she thinks it says something about character, she needs to remember that Bernie Madoff had a wonderful credit rating and he is a rat. Credit rating doesn't mean you are a great person.
