A woman is not required to marry a man just because he wants to marry her. She is also not required to give a reason for refusing. Marriage is optional. 

The opposite is also true - that is, a man is not required to marry a woman just because she wants to marry him, and he is also not required to give a reason for refusing. 

The idea a woman must give her life over to a man simply because he asks - unless she had a reasonable excuse - would indeed be an astonishing form of male privilege.

Main criteria for marriage in Islam is religious practice and good morals. Financial status is not among the main conditions. In fact the Prophet (SAWA) proposed a marriage between very poor person ( Jowaibir) and a very rich woman (Al-Dhalfaa').

The man should be able to earn livelihood for him and his wife and live with his wife with dignity.

It is good for your husband to help you as it is good for you to help him, but if you ask about the obligatory duty of your husband then the answer is: Husband is responsible to spend on all livelihood expenses of his wife including accommodation, food, clothing, medicine etc. He is not responsible to pay for your loans which you have taken for yourself and not for both of you or for your livelihood expenses.

Your student loan was taken by you and the money was received and spent by you and not spent by both of you. Had your husband spent any amount of that loan, either for his own expenses or on your livelihood expenses which is his responssibilty , he will be then responsible to repay that amount.
