Tax and Marriage

In some countries being married provides taxation benefits, you could pay less tax as a couple than you would as two single people. Best talk to an accountant about this. Money is not a good reason to get married, and these tax benefits are usually in place to support the building of a family.

If you run a business you could also split the amount the household requires equally amongst the people in your household that work for the company and pay less tax overall. This only works in a proportional income tax system. Also check the legality of this in your jurisdiction.
