Once you’re married, you and your spouse will need to work together to maintain your new family’s finances.
That means your credit cards, car debt, and student loans are not the responsibility of your spouse.
Your partner is only legally responsible for the debt you run up after you’re married.

Especially for the newly-weds, some financial problem only surface after marriage.
When we are thinking of combining finances between spouses, it has a lot to do with individual comfort and trust levels.
