Follow up: she surprised me by emailing me that she intends to file married filing separately. She asked for all her tax document, which basically consist of a few medical bills that won't be tax deductible, and a $100 gift the charity.

She has no income, so I'm not sure what she'll accomplish. She doesn't even have to file. My new question: if I'm the sole source of income, can I claim her as a dependent?
