How will getting married to an ill person for ins., with lrg. medical bills, effect me if the worse happens?

My boyfriend whom I love very much, is ill. He does not have insurance or a job. We live in Texas, so we could very easily be common law married. If something were to happen to him, will I end up having to pay his medical bills? Will this effect the disability he is receiving from the US government?
