It is rare for a married couple to file separately for tax purposes and come out with a lower tax liability. There are isolated instances, but for the most part, just assume that you should file jointly.Also, most tax software will automatically calculate both joint and separate for you, so you won't really have to do anything differently.One thing you may want to do is check out a copy of the book called, "Couples and Cash: How to Handle Money with Your Honey". It has some great tips for how to handle finances as a couple (much different than going at it as a single guy).Congratulations!mnc
