I think the first 20% of the article actually matched the article's title.  Then it turned into 'Be prepared if your marriage fails' doom and gloom advice.

 

I also didn't understand the subheading 'Your Spouce's Credit Score Can't Impact Your Finances' and then it goes on to say that one spouse can cause a mortgage decline or higher rates.

Appreciate you sharing the article. The article claims credit history will not be merged. People sharing an address and a last name the CRA tend to mistakenly merge some information. This happens without any AU cards.
