Ignore all of the holier-than-thou-ness on this board and do what's best for your situation. It's sad that you and your wife were put into this situation by a government that has made it clear they don't like you and as you've probably already ascertained, this board is decidedly left wing as you can see from all of the judgmental replies...

I've read entire thread. The only judgmental replies I've seen are those that tend to believe marriage vows mean more than "for better worse unless there is a tax advantage to being single." Is that a left wing position?

I saw lots of posts about the possible problems in other areas that are impacted by the marriage. I saw these as warnings, certainly not holier-than-thou-ness.

I don't remember the marriage penalty being a position of either party, do you?

Maybe the legislature should have been less focus on DOMA and more on the marriage penalty.
