The government and the states get enough of our money, they don't need to tax us married folks just to get more of our money. It is hard enough to survive on the little bit we all make, why should we have to give up more so they can keep increase their salaries.

Wedding Bells - No tax on marriage!
Has it really been proposed? Surely people should be encouraged to marry and dissuaded from divorcing! I don't think there should be a tax on marriage. In the UK there are tax advantages to being married (a small extra personal allowance).

Actually, during the Clinton administration, 6 out of the 8 years he was president we paid a marriage tax. When our tax advisor told us this, I could have chewed nails. Then, the last two years of his sitting, they gave us a tax break on children, a substancial amount. Bush cut out the marriage tax and cut down heavily on the child alotment. They are talking about starting up the marriage tax again however. Depending on who gets in office in our next election. Thought this was so rediculous. Lol, just when you thought there couldn't be another bonus to divorce. :O)
