You are not legally responsible for the debts or obligations of the other person so long as they're not joint debts.

However, marriage is a legal contract, and there is a legal and moral responsibility to support the spouse. However, if you don't, you're not going to get in any trouble - but it could lead to the marriage breaking up.
