We recently got a joint credit card it is negatively impacting my spouses score
We have had it for about a month , it dropped his score by 40+ points. Would it be better to remove him from the card? Will this help his score recover, since the new card account and history being so new?

How long will the new account negatively impact his score if he is left on it?

Thank you for your time and help!
