Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
is my current wife responsible for a property/home that I singularly bought prior to our marriage and could a foreclosure/short sale on that property affect her credit in anyway?
No, any debt that you brought into the marriage is your separate debt and doesn't become your spouse's simply because you marry after incurring it. She would have to sign a contract agreeing to be responsible in order for the creditor to hold her liable.
And no, since this debt is tied to your SSN, it wouldn't affect her credit at all since she has no legal obligation to repay it...
