Q: If I cosign an apartment lease for my soon to be ex wife how will that effect my signing a lease for my own apartment?

I do understand the gravity of cosigning. She makes more than enough to pay the rent. They require proof of 3x rent in monthly income which she cannot meet. I have no worries about her paying and we both have excellent credit. Thank you
