As long as you haven’t been listed on the court documents and are in no way party to the marital dispute, I am not aware of any way the creditors could demand you to make payments on your fiancée’s / spouse’s behalf. However, you would be wise to confirm this with your fiancée’s divorce attorney as I am not familiar with the finer parts of divorce legislation so there may be some obscure clause that I have never run across.

However, I would recommend you keep your money in a separate bank account, don’t add your fiancée name to that account, or to any property that you may own prior to having been involved with your fiancée,
