We're getting married this summer.

All best wishes.

I was considering plugging our 2012 numbers into the tax software as if we'd been married, just to see how things look as a prediction, but so far I haven't had the time. I wonder if this would be a good exercise, although if there was an impact, I don't know what we'd do about it.

There's a lot you can do about it, and today's not too soon. For example, if it looks like you're going to come up way short he could increase his ES payment or you could decrease your withholding allowances. You want April 15, 2014 to have nothing but happy surprises.
