<In my opinion the best time to get married is when it feels right. Damn the taxes.>How about a different variation? Taxes should never enter the picture about whether or not to get married. However, once one decides on the affirmative, the timing of it can be done with an awareness of the tax impact. There can be a very big tax difference between being the last one married in the current year and the first one married in the new year. I happened to get married on Christmas Eve. At least it makes it impossible to forget the date. We closed on our house right after the first of the year. So of course we got clubbed in our first year of taxes as MFJ filers. Unfortunately, I didn't have the benefit of all my Foolish wisdom back then. For us, making the decision based on the tax issue was not practical. If you focus too much on the tax implications, you can easily end up walking down the aisle alone.<grin>
