FARNOOSH: Credit scores can be mystifying, what actually affects
your score? Does your marriage have anything to do with it? NEW YORKER 1: I don’t know, I don’t think so. NEW YORKER 2: I think it does. NEW YORKER 3: I don’t know the answer. NEW YORKER 4: If you’re married, then you may have the
same score if you have the same bank accounts and stuff like that. FARNOOSH: Here’s the truth: while your spouse’s
score matters when you apply for loans together, it’s not like your scores get averaged. Each of
you will always maintain an individual credit profile. For Chase Slate, I’m Farnoosh Tarabi.
