Please tell me I'm being silly. I mean, he brings home more bacon than me, and he pays the mortgage... I just hate putting so much debt in my name, even if it would be paid off fairly quickly.

Any thoughts?


Sometimes the sleep-at-night factor has to come before other things. If you're gonna feel resentful over transferring his balance, then go ahead and do yours. At least that way if for some awful reason things don't work out, you're not stuck w/ his debt in your name. And you won't be cranky with him, which IMO, would make things muck more likely to work out. ;)

yes, I think things will work out. I also think if you're not cranky with him, ya get a better start.
