I'm not sure where you live, but I know where I live, your benefits are tied to your household income, and by being married to someone with an income, it will be counted when calculating any benefits, so yes, you would lose some of that. But every system is different.

I'm curious as to whether it makes a difference as to whether you decide to get married anyway, though. It certainly wasn't something that had any bearing on my decision when I remarried.
