I don't know anything about when you could join NFCU, but I opened an acct. at NFCU a few months ago. About a month later, I tried for a NFCU credit card. I do have several baddies on my CR with a credit score much lower than hers and they approved me for a CC with a $5000 limit. I think they are very generous in approving credit, so I bet she wouldn't have any problem in getting one.

You should be able to join NFCU through her. I was able to join through my husband, since they require an "immediate family" relationship to a member if you are not otherwise qualifying for membership on your own.

My fiance joined through me and I joined through my step dad. Should be good!

You will definitely qualify on Monday.
And I agree with others on the thread-- NFCU is incredibly generous. I had several (like 10) baddies when I apped and was approved for a $6K CC in December 2011. I started rebuilding in Nov 2012 and hopefully, I will be able to refi my auto with them soon.
Congrats on ur marriage and joining NFCU in the future-- they are a great CU to have.
