I’m no expert, but I’ve never seen anything about marital status affecting loan eligibility.  However, the dual income will effect what direct aid (scholarships, grants, work study) you qualify for because that stuff is based directly off of FAFSA, which is straight from your income taxes.

Are you currently being counted under your parents?  If so, getting married would probably up your financial aid eligibility because you will probably be making a lot less with the two of you than as a dependant under your parents.  If you aren’t filing under your parents, it probably doesn’t change much.
