its all pure credit card debt you lower utilization by transfering to a new card if  it high utilization and you can't pay it off that would be worth the 5-7 points you lose from the inquiry....or you could dumb his *** given he's a bum 15k in debt

The best thing you can do for him is to let HIM pay off his debt before you even think of marriage.  Youed. keep your credit to yourself until then.  I say that with love because my daughter married a guy who convinced her to pay his traffic fines ($3000 for DUI-drugs) then he used her credit to the point they filed bankruptcy twice.  She is now on her own, but her credit is trash.  Don't let it happen to you,, please.
