How Marriage Saves Money

One of my first paying jobs as an attorney was to research whether there is any way that two people who are married can file as single (the short answer is generally not). I took this assignment way too seriously and over-researched the issue, and presented my boss with a five page research memo. I didn't work for that person very long, but I did realize what incredible tax savings can be had with marriage. I took this into consideration when I had my first article, Estate Planning Considerations in Divorce, published. When you are considering making a decision about marriage or divorce, it is really important to consult an attorney versed not only in family law, but also in tax law.
