I have two lesbian friends who are planning on getting married soon. One of them has had some financial problems and is retired. She owes about $10k on several credit cards.
Her only income is Social Security, which they cannot touch, but her soon-to-be wife is concerned that the collectors could attach HER wages if they get married.
The debt was created early on in their relationship...and the younger of the two is NOT currently involved with any of these credit card companies.
QUESTION: Can they hold the younger woman responsible for debts created by her spouse BEFORE they were married?
