Our jobs pay well but are both challenging and the situations somewhat volatile. That is, while I expect us to be similarly employed in five years, I would not be awfully surprised if one of us was out of work either (become fed up and walk, or company politics forces a change, for example).

Problem solved, then. The marriage penalty doesn't apply when one spouse's income is minimal.
