I got lucky.  My DH started school this year, so we didn’t get bumped.  On top of that we’re receiving a substantial refund!  We’re going to throw it all into savings.  Better to pretend that we never saw the money, LOL.

I work at a law firm, and one day at a meeting, I sat with two of the partners at the firm (who are 45-55 years old and make upwards of $2MM a year APIECE) who told me they have been living together for 15+ years but never got married because they don’t want to pay taxes!!  My jaw seriously hit the floor.  I mean, really?  I guess they must have really sat down and calculated it all and figured that they would have had a HUUUUUUUUGE tax “penalty” if they get married, because why the in world would you not marry the love of your life just to make some money (especially when you already have SO MUCH)? 

Oh, and just to head off questions, it’s a man and a woman, so there are no legal impediments to them getting married.

That’s insane that they are making millions each annually anyway!
