What about us single folks nearing retirement who are considering marriage. How does marriage affect our social security dollars. Do we get less or more as a couple, and if less, is the tradeoff worth what may be more costly individual medical. At this point in my life I am reluctant to give up any more dollars to the Feds than they are already locked into. But of course there are legal issues also, ownership, benefits for remaining spouse, etc. I will be getting more retirement than my man, so I want him to be taken care of in case anything happens to me. But it is hard to understand what the best financial position to take is. Marriage may be only a sentimental thought at this point, but does anyone have any experience with my dilema?
