Depends on the will
No, debts that are incurred before a marriage do not become the responsibility of the new spouse.
No. Your present spouse had no legal responsibility for you before you were married.
Yes and no. It depends on the state that you live in. See an attorney.
In some community property states it is possible for a creditor to garnish the wages of either spouse even if only one spouse is the judgment debtor if the debt was incurred during the marriage. Such a garnishment would not apply in cases of child support or alimony. In non CP states only the spouse who holds the account is responsible for the debt. Spouse's are not responsible for their partner's debts that were incurred before marriage regardless of where the married couple reside. That being the case, a judgment against a person before their marriage could not be enforced against the new spouse. Please be advised, that if the judgment has not been executed, it is the debtor's responsibility to file the allowed real and personal property exemptions and other pertinent information. In such a situation, the non debtor spouse could not have his or her wages garnished, but in most states it is possible to levy joint marital bank accounts.

Yes. However, the Consumer Credit Protection Act limits the amount. Your wages can be garnished up to a maximum of 50% to cover child and/or spousal support if you are supporting another spouse or child. If you are not supporting another child and/or spouse, up to 60% of your wages can be garnished. Generally, no more than 25 percent of a person's wages is garnished.
Get a restraining order.
There is no law that expects a spouse to stay in a marriage where their spouse has cheated just because they have children. However, if this is the first time the one spouse has cheated it is wise to realize that 'to err is human' and worth seeing a marriage counselor before deciding to end the marriage. If two people really do not love each other then they will inevitably not get along; not trust their spouse;; arguments and frustration could break out and this does not make for a good environment for children.

In some instances, yes they can. Is the spouse listed on the debt? An example would be a joint loan or credit card. If so, that makes the spouse legally liable for the debt. If not, then no, the wages cannot be garnished because the spouse is not legally liable for the debt.
