I am in a relationship with someone who was recently divorced (2 years). As part of her ED, she agreed to remain as the co-signer for the mortgages on several investment/rental properties until a more favorable economic time (another ~18 months max). Are there any financial pitfalls for me if we were to get married? In other words, it’s possible that her ex could default on the loans which would bankrupt her. Would this impact my credit or could this create any financial liability on me, if we were married?
As always, thank you for your service!
