She has bad credit, credit card and a student loan from an attempt at college. Would anything bad happen if we just ignored her debt(mostly student loans) if all the assets were in my name and the liabilities were in her name only?

She's planning on just staying home and having a kid so she wouldn't have any source of income that could be garnished or intercepted and we have agreed that I would be responsible for the finances since I have a history of financial and career responsibility.

Student loan debts are almost impossible to get rid of, even in bankruptcy.

I won't even get into how unethical it is to just blow off your debts (which it is).

Besides the above really sure you want to marry someone who bad credit?

Money is one of the biggest issues people fight about and it sounds like you two probably have very different attitudes toward handling money that could lead to a lot of conflict.

I also think walking out on financial commitments is a bad sign for your marriage.

When people walk away from smaller commitments, they are also apt to walk away from bigger ones.

My reply is similar to the post above: the number one reason married couples get divorced is over financial situations.

If you really want to live with this person the rest of your life, make sure you have already sat down with her and agree on both of your financial obligations.

If there are many areas you do not agree right now, just think how worse it will be down the road as your family grows.
