It's exactly the same, making 2 people 100% responsible for a debt, clever if people are stupid enough to do it.

There was never a legal requirement, it was possible to ask in the past, it still is possible to ask. I know someone who used to be on EF, when she was married her husband wanted an XR3 in the 1980's, she refused to co sign & he did not get the car. Asking for a guarantor is common when people have lower credit scores.
In this specific example you're mixing things up.

A married couple that does not have any special (financial) contract, lives in joint property. (In Switzerland anyway).

None of them can make depts without the other's signature. That's marital law though.
