Can Divorcing A Spendy Spouse Help You Keep Your Security Clearance?
If you're a current or former member of the armed forces who holds a security clearance, you likely try to avoid behaviors that could jeopardize this clearance (and often, your job). Being arrested for driving under the influence or being late on your taxes could be enough to have your clearance stripped. However, the way you handle credit can also have a big impact on your clearance as well. If you're married to a spouse who can't stop spending, you could find your clearance in trouble, even if you've been responsible with credit yourself.
