Tina:

I am so sorry about your boyfriend. I know this is a difficult time for you.

Washington is a community property state. Therefore if you marry your boyfriend, you will be legally responsible for all medical bills and other debts incurred in his name after your marriage. You will not be responsible for any of the medical bills and other debts he incurred before the date of your marriage however unless you co-signed for any of them or signed paperwork agreeing to be responsible for them.
