Would you marry someone who you loved and treated you and your kids well, knowing they have really bad credit?

  • Umm...yes.

    I am not marrying for credit. I am marrying for love and family. So long as I am not scared that this man would drive our family into a hole, there would be no problems. If this is a possibility, then a very long talk about financial responsibility would ensue prior to the actual marriage.

  • I think that i would, but ask him about it and see if he would let you help him maybe get it better? If that's possible... but if he loves you and your kids... try!

  • Excellent question.

    I'd love to be treated well but also would love to know he could buy us a home and provide for us. Credit is important nowadays.

    Maybe I'd just live with him and keep my own credit! No reason to screw my credit up by combining it with his!

  • I married my husband because we love each other. Finances didn't figure into it.

  • That depends. Is he fiscally irresponsible? Would he put himself and his spending habits before you and your children? It would depend on whether or not he would be willing to work on fixing his credit with you.

  • yes, you can repair bad credit and it's harder to find a good man then it is to repair his credit

  • i did! lol my husbands credit is beyond horrible!!! were working together (meaning im working lol) and bringing his credit up. we love eachother and thats all that matters. i sacrificed buying a house to be with him. we rent right now, but i can stay at home and take care of everything else and work on bbuilding his credit. i think when you love eachother, and truly love eachother, youll sacrifice what you have to to be together
