I'll have to get back to you on this. What is generally the case with MOST agreements?
Expert:  Ellen replied 8 years ago.
Most agreements that I have seen the secondard card holder is liable on the entire debt.

OK, so the primary AND secondard cardholders are fully liabile for debt payments? Does a married couple have a different set of requirements? Does being married affect the situation at all?
Expert:  Ellen replied 8 years ago.

Being married does not affect the situation. If you want to send me the language on your agreement, I can give you a more certain answer. No extra chargeSmile
