I live in Texas with my fiance and her 5 yr old son. Child support was established in Florida with her ex. Will our marriage affect the amount of child support owed? Also, does our marriage affect the responsibility of her ex? Meaning, is her ex still responsible to pay child support until a certain age?

You raised a couple of issues:
(1) Will your marriage affect the amount of child support owed? NO
(2) Does your marriage affect her ex's responsibilities? NO. He will still have to pay child support until the child is 18 or graduates from high school.
Congrats on your pending marriage.
