I know…this commercial is annoying. But it really has a point. Getting a credit check may save your marriage.
Now, back in the day, couples would have to get blood tests before they were legally married. These days, you show up at city hall, hold up your right hand, sign a bunch of paperwork, and it’s, hopefully, till death do you part. (Unless you’re of the same sex. Then, you really don’t have that right pretty much anywhere in the U.S.)
I believe in knowing your partner’s credit score before you tie the knot. I know it’s not romantic. But I also think that two people can be in love and not necessarily get married. Love doesn’t necessarily need to lead to marriage. When you’re deciding on the rest of your life together, you have to think beyond love. Love will hopefully help when you seem to hit rock bottom, and if you remember you once loved each other, it might carry you though immensely tough times. And like I’ve said in a previous post, I also don’t think just having money is the answer either. But before anyone gets married, shouldn’t there be a more stringent checklist?
Wants children? Yes or No
Believes in God? Yes or No
Sexually compatible? Yes or No
Similar goals? Yes or No
Long term ambitions? Yes or No
Financially stable? Yes or No
Credit score of 650 or above? Yes or No
What do you think?
