Manage credit cards FAQs
There is no need for a long list of employees to be able to use your corporate credit cards; however, it can be helpful to allow a few employees access to company credit cards so you don't have to attend every transaction.

The other spouse is not automatically added to your credit card accounts. You have to actually add them to your account for them to be able to use your cards.
Even though your credit may not be affected by your spouse's bad credit, debt may greatly affect the family budget. It is important to talk about debt and finances before and after marriage. If you have not yet married (or just married), you may consider making a Prenuptial Agreement.
After marriage, it is common for spouses to take on mutual debt. Mutual debt is associated with both persons names and credit reports.
