Will my debt problems affect my new wife?
(Vermillion south dakota, united states)
I owe alot of money to multiple pay day advance loan companies, both online and in the town i use to live in. Due to many unforeseen factors i have been unable to pay on any of them. I recently just got married, and had failed to mention the multiple loans etc to my new wife. I got in over my head and before i knew it it was way over what i could afford to even pay on any of the loans and pay bills. I finally told my new wife. She said she doesn't care about my credit or who i owe as long as it doesn't affect her credit score. Until it does its on me to figure out how to get into the mess i got myself into. If it does start affecting her credit score in any way then she will pay them off.
I understand her point of view. Its on me to be responsible for my carelessness. Not her fault or problem. My question is, can her credit score be affected in anyway? And can the companies call her demanding payment now that we are married or they will pursue her credit score as well? We live in south dakota.
