My fiance and I have agreed to keep our finances separate due the fact that she owns a house with her ex and has some investments and I just divorced a money black hole. She also doesn't want my bad credit from my previous marriage to affect her credit or worse, be held responsible for it. Will her credit be affected my mine after we are married? Will she be held responsible for my bad credit and be pursued by my creditors? Can you suggest any way to keep our finances separate after we get married and buy a house together sometime down the line? Right now I am paying fair rent since she is making payments on the house in her name and I also pay half the groceries and utilities. Eventually she is going to sell her house and we are planning on moving to another state and buying a house there.
