Areas of Law / Debt matter

I’m quite heavily in debt, but I’ve come to an arrangement with my creditors over repayments. However I’m getting married in six months’ time, and wondered if my future husband will become liable for my debts in any way?

Husbands and wives are not usually responsible for each others’ individual debts. However if you open a joint bank account for example, or buy a house in joint names, your creditors could try to get their money from these. So you’ll have to be a bit careful about linking your finances while you still have debts outstanding.
