How Alimony Affects A Future Marriage For One Couple

If my boyfriend and I decide to get married in the future, can his soon to be ex go back to court and try to get more money since their will be two incomes?

I am planning on going into the teaching field and that brings in about $45k a year in CA, he brings in $60k, so we were wondering since he has a 15yr old child if she could go back and state that she wants more money because now I am in the picture, and I'll be DAMNED if I am going to work hard for her to reap benefits.

If we do get married should we keep a separate accounts and file taxes separately till the child is 18? Or should we just live together until after the child is 18?

Confused but wanting to settle down in CA!
