And file your returns separately after marriage.

my boyfriend, of the last 6 years, carries heavy tax burdens. We're planning to get married soon. But I'm afraid that his tax debt liabilities will pass on to me and affect my credit as well. What to do?

No, it won't. However, I would recommend a pre-nuptial arrangement specifying separation of assets and debt liabilities. And file your returns separately after marriage. That would be enough I suppose. And, evidently don't act as a co-signer or open up joint lines of credit if you want to avoid all the hassle.
