Looking at pension info, it's better financially to not be married when you retire - a single person gets 100% of the pension, a married couple share 150%. :/

I've always wondering what does the average think about thismarried working couple tax situation? Does it look as bizarre to them as it does to us?

I'm still trying to work out if the financial benefit is worth it ... we'll just have to wait and see, perhaps one of us will die before then, and make it irrelevant.
