How long do you to be married jointly owned property?

You do not necessarily have to be married to own jointly owned property and even when an individual is married for 60 years he could still keep property separate from his spouse. Property is considered jointly owned if you purchased it together (each contributing), your name is on the property, or in some situations when you are married and you have substantially contributed to the property. If your spouse has kept the property separate by keeping it in his name, only putting his money into it then it will be considered separate.

Is the deceaseds spouse responsible for debts not in their name?

They might be. Anything jointly owned would normally become sole property of the spouse, but, is still part of the deceased's estate. After taking appropriate legal steps for example, a creditor could force the sale of a jointly owned property, splitting the money with the spouse to start paying off the deceased's debts. If all the deceased's assets are liquidated, and it is not enough to pay off the debt though, then the spouse is not responsible for that part, that debt will then have to be written off.

Is a spouse responsible for the other spouse medical bills?

Yes, even if indirectly. If they are still living, yes, they are jointly responsible. Since they are married, any benefit to one is considered a benefit to the other. If the spouse has passed away, the estate is responsible for the medical bills of the deceased. And since the spouse is normally the recipient of the estate, the bills will affect how much the spouse will inherit. Some of the assets, such as property held as Tenants in the Entirety, becomes the property of the spouse. Other assets may have to be liquidated to pay the bills, including medical expenses and funeral costs.
