I know, I know, this poll question seemed like a no-win situation. Because realistically, for the majority of us bad credit and crazy co-parents are as my girl Nikki put it, "the equal deal breakers."
But sometimes in life, we gotta make the hard choices... And don't act like you haven't run up on the cutie that made you want to change your religion until he/she explained that they can't even purchase a new cell phone without a freaking $1500 security deposit or that the real reason they have 7 bolt locks on the door is b/c the ex keeps kicking it in. Mmm-hmmm...
Ultimately, it seems that if absolutely forced to make a choice, 54% of you considered crappy credit to be the worse of the two evils. Clearly current economic concerns are making us say "no thank you" to more than that new pair of Manolos, huh? Well, like that old R&B song said- 'ain't nothing going on without the rent.' And quietly, nowadays you won't even qualify to view let alone rent that exclusive Riverside Drive duplex penthouse suite, without stellar credit. Shoot, we can always lock up your ex but I ain't got 10 years to wait on you to get your car out of your auntie's name.
For the 46% willing to hire a fantastic financial advisor and hold your boo down till that money gets right, kudos. I definitely understand why you put your foot down on the crazy co-parent. Don't nobody need the phone ringing all times of the night or want folks jumping out of bushes kamakazi style. Sometimes there's just not enough room or group therapy in the world for three adults in one relationship. Unlike the terrorists who consider suicide bombing a ticket to heaven... everybody ain't able.
