will adding someone to my cc hurt my credit?
My score is 748, my fiance's is 630, I would like to put his name on my credit card to help raise his score. (We want to buy a house and he needs to up his scores first)I have 100% on time payments with a $9,000 limit. I won't let him use the card, but will adding his name to my card hurt me in anyway?

As long as you're not giving access to the card to someone who might use it irresponsibly, merely adding his name shouldn't hurt you and might help him.
