The CFPB has updated existing regulations to make it easier for spouses or partners who do not work outside of the home to qualify for credit cards. The amendment allows credit card issuers to consider income that a stay-at-home applicant, who is 21 or older, shares with a spouse or partner when evaluating the applicant for a new account or increased credit limit.
