Will it help to remove me from my spouses accounts
When my credit score was lower than my wife's, we added me to a couple of her new accounts. Now my score is much higher, but still not over 740. If we remove me from those two accounts, will it help or hurt my credit score? I have 20 open accounts, of various type. The average age is 4 years.

Initially you would probably take

a small hit by removing yourself from these accounts.

In the long run, your score would most likely bounce right back, you have plenty of other accounts (about twice the national average) so the impact should be minimal 

Good luck
