This is where my mind went. Plus you get the flip side situation: The high earning spouse gets a significant tax break when compared to what his/her tax liability would be as a Single filer.

The good news/bad news of having a retired husband. Our taxes will be significantly lower for 2012, but so is our income. Since our state income taxes will drop by more than half, maybe no AMT either.
