Yes! Credit Matters: When Saying “I Do” Is A Don’t
For many people, marriage is the natural evolution of a great relationship. What's not to love? Bad credit for one thing. it’s not that married couples share a FICO® Score or Report, but if one of you has bad credit, you could be denied when you apply for loans and credit together. So, before you say “I Do,” make sure you understand, and can accept, the way your future mate handles credit and finances. Plus, don’t forget to discuss your debts so you both know what you’re getting into.
Question: What do I tell my kids about credit?
Answer: it’s never too early to teach your kids about credit, and how it affects their finances. Giving your kids a weekly allowance shows them how money is earned in exchange for work. Their allowance can then be divided into spending money and savings to teach them fiscal responsibility. You could even give them loans for special purchases to teach them about interest rates and paying their bills on time.
Taking good care of your credit can help you get the things you want.
