Credit can be rebuilt. If he was working on it, then yes.

Is that how dating works now? Back when i was single and dating you dated and fell in love with someone based on who they were, not on their credit score. Do people fill out applications and carry their recent credit history around with them these days?

LMAO. Sure if I Loved him. You can always work to build your credit up, Dh and I are working on ours now so we can buy a home in a yr. I would not pass up the chance to be with my DH because of his credit, and I think it is silly for women to base marriage on a credit score. That's sad.

Probably not, no. Money is what ended my parent's marriage. It is INHERENT that my spouse be extremely responsible with money. And he is.

Nope, that is irresponsible. I had bad credit when I met SO for signing for my family members. SO and I did not get married until I cleaned up my credit. He didn't have any credit when we met b/c he always paid cash for everything. Sometimes that is worse than bad credit (that's what we were told). While I cleaned up mine, he started buidling credit. We both know how important good credit is.

Why would you base love on a credit score??? Credit does not equal happiness!  That is silly!
