My questions can best be explained by giving a senario. I got married on July 15, 2000. My wife sold some stock for a loss before we were married earlier in the year. I sold some stock for a gain before we were married also earlier in the year and then some other stock for a gain after we were married. If we file jointly can I use her losses to offset all of my gains.
