Re: Financial Follies that Break the Relationship

Ouch! :smileysad:

 

I'm all for dividing up responsibilities for payments, if that's what makes sense for a couple, but IMO, any jointly-held credit (mortgages, CC's, etc.) should be reviewed monthly by each person to make sure that everything is OK.

 

That's the killer about joint credit; it only takes one person to mess up for both people's credit to be damaged, and there's rarely much recourse.
