    It's a penalty to everyone. My wife's first dollar she makes in January is taxed at 31 percent because her income is added to mine, not treated seperately for a seperate person like if we were single. If we'd just divorce, she get the benefit of the lower tax brackets on her early earnings like everyone else.

    Regardless, on that point I would say there should be no tax benefit or liability for becoming married. Nor should there be unlimited deductions for having kids.

    Another straw man.

    Taxes have nothing to do with civil rights. Try again.

    And besides, as it currently stands you can take your tax burden down by having more kids. Additionally, married couples get plenty of tax benefits on things like mortgages and such that single people cannot claim. I mean, it's a boo hoo my wife gets taxed more on dollar one, but we're reaping more benefits in the end. Fine, I'll treat your income separately (you can file separately too), but we're taking all the other benefits away too. No reason why we should subsidize married families by taxing single people more.

    Of course they don't. That's too inconvenient and hypocritical for the liberal platform to digest.

    Guess it's clear at page 5 your only objective in this thread is to show your hatred for gays.

    Well done Mexico.

    No, actually it isn't. The Marriage Tax Penalty

    The marriage penalty still exists for some couples depending on their tax bracket.
    Tax Implications of Marraige - Associated Content - associatedcontent.com

    Majority of the married couples prefer to file their tax returns jointly. This is because filing tax returns jointly creates a low tax liability if the income of both the husband and wife is unequal and carries a difference. There are also many credits that the married couple can avail if they file their tax returns jointly. Also filing jointly means filling in only once and not twice so it is in a way time saving method. So filing jointly has better tax implications on married couples.
    Further, since married people have the choice of filing jointly or separately, you can 100 % avoid any penalty.

    We call this sourcing a claim and proving a claim.

    Whatever you feel about the issue itself, it isn't being "chosen," except in a few cases. It's being imposed judicially, not through democratic "choice."
