Does getting married mean you’ll see more money in your check? I recently added my wife to my benefits at work, also expecting in April?

    Depends on whether you've adjusted your dependents on your W-2. But you will have a child tax deduction you can take in future tax years.

    In spite of all the hype to the contrary, it just doesn't work that way in the real world. When I got married, it cost me $2000 a year in additional taxes and fees.

    No. You get paid for the work you do - not whether you are married or not or if you have a dozen children. Marriage and families cost money.

      I’m talking about whether it effects the taxes I have to pay to the government dude resulting in a bigger take home.

    It means another deduction and possible credits when you file a return.
