If I want to marry someone with high amounts of medical bills, would those bills transfer to me in any way?
Question Details: My fiance has an enormous amount of medical bills due to an earlier accident. If we marry would this affect me or my credit history?
Since you do not live in a community property state, unless your name was also on the bills or you agreed to be liable for those bills, you have no obligation to either pay them or be held responsible for paying them. That having been said, to the extent that you and your fiance/husband have joint asests, they cold be seized for payment. Therefore, do not hold joint title to cars, bank accounts, stocks, real estate, etc.; keep your assets separate.
