Re: Stay-at-home spouse... Good Credit Benefits?

Touchy subject: I still feel a part of credit is based upon ability to re-pay. Having credit in ones own name is typically better and protects against changes in circumstances with the primary cardholder. Anyone who has been through a divorce or break-up when people were tied financially will tell you "Stuff happens".


Be a stay at home Jake?! No thank you! I love the kids but would be bored poop-less after about two days. Smiley Happy


If someone wants to stay home and can really afford it (financially and spiritually), more power to them. I just think it's a little unreasonable to expect the same lifestyle two paychecks can afford. I realize that's not a popular opinion but did water it down a great deal.
