What happens if I have bad credit and I get married?

I have very bad credit due to some decisions I made in college without really knowing what I was doing (dumb). I’m working very hard on monitoring and repairing it, but I understand that these things take time and the best way to go about it is to stay on top of your bills and debt and pay things on time (which i have been).

I’ve been living with my boyfriend for over a year and a half now and we’ve talked about marriage but he wants to wait because of my bad credit. What exactly would my credit score mean as a married person? I guess I am not completely sure what I would impact. Any help or advice would be appreciated.
