You can add him to credit cards but wont help on a cable bills? WTH
There's a BIG difference in both situations.
Her adding him to HER card means that she ultimately has complete control over the situation.
Him using her so that he can get a utility is leaving herself at the mercy of whether he pays or nots. She has no control afterwards.
She's being preemptive and proactive and trying to control her credit situation.
There is no shame in that.
