If by premarital agreements you're referring to prenuptial agreements, you should be aware that they are not allowed by the Church. The reasoning behind it is that it automatically presumes that a divorce situation is not out of the question, thus going against the Church's teaching about the permanency of marriage. There are certain arrangements that meet with the Church's approval concerning financial agreements, such as those involving children of a previous marriage, but the scope is limited.
It makes sense to have some verbal discussions about money well before marriage, whether one has children from a prior marriage or not. I support that, but not "pre-nups." Mention of needing a prenup is a good way to lose a fiance. No one, and I mean no one appreciates being considered a "threat."
An individual's credit report is much like a balance sheet. It shows one's credit worthiness at one point in time, e.g., it can be changed for the better or for the worse, and is not a good indicator of the person in general. No one is exempt from life difficulties such as critical illnesses, unexpected life problems, and loses of income. Any and all of the above would affect a credit report.
Better, I would find someone who I think has good judgment, or rather whose ideals are similar to my own about money and living in general.
