For couples that only have one set of student loans, great. I don't have any hard stats on this, but I think if you talk to a lot of couples where both partners are young professionals, you'll find that they BOTH have student loan debt. In many cases both partners will have hefty student loan debt. Reason being that most professional careers require a grad degree of some sort and most grad degrees involve going into at least SOME debt.
Your numbers are not accurate. Also you are not taking in to account many law graduates will be in relationships or marriage by the time they graduate. Like most couples today both people work. So the numbers you portray are not accurate because lots of times you have two people working off one debt.
