    If you are really serious about it then a credit card is one of the fastest credit builders. But if you don't pay it they can really hurt your credit too. Even a small bank loan will help but you may have to have a co-signer. Any loan against anything will help though but you will prob have to pay a higher interest rate on whatever it is. But if you keep your payments made on time the interest will eventually go down. avoid applying for too many loans cause everytime a credit check is run your credit score is dropped. good luck, it won't be easy but if you try you can do it.

    You must be 18 years old to legally enter into a binding contract. I know that seems like a long time and the fact that you're married at 17 doesn't have any bearing on this.

    You can be an authorized user (a person who can use a credit card but is not financially liable for any of the charges) at any age. If your husband is 18 or older he can obtain a credit card and add you to the account as an authorized user.

    I think that you will have to wait until you are 18 years old. If your spouse is of legal age, then as a married couple you should be acquiring credit together. Good Luck :)

    You are to young to get credit with out a getting some one to co sign for you. Sorry but you have to prove you are responsible enough for a loan and there is only one way to prove it, find some one to co-sign for you pay the loan off on time no late payments then you are on your way.

    Without a co-signer of legal age, you have to wait until you are of a legal age.
