How do I build someone's credit while they are overseas and not a US citizen? I am getting married to someone who is Japanese (in about 5 months) and lives in Japan right now. Because I know we will one day want to buy a house, I want to start building her credit as soon as possible because I know that it is easier to get a loan with two people signing instead of one.

I am making about $60,000 and live in the Atlanta area. I am thinking of (after a year of marriage) buying a townhome or single family home; not too far away from the city, somewhat close to a Marta rail station, and in an area that is likely to appreciate in value.
