In todays day and age there is always the financial implications to consider and this isn't to mean that people will marry for tax benefits, however we have to be aware of the financial implications before we make a massive step in our lives. And sometimes you know you want to be together forever and marriage isn't a big deal breaker or of great importance to you - but administrationally and sensibly it makes sense.
Please see below a selection of countries and their rules for married couples;
Germany - The German income tax code allows married couples to benefit from full income splitting relative to unmarried couples. If their individual incomes are different, legally married couples may benefit from jointly filing their income taxes and thus fully splitting their incomes because of increasing marginal tax rates. The gain from joint taxation for married couples arises every year including the year in which they marry, independent of the month of the marriage. I use data from the German Socio-Economic Panel to test whether couples with larger gains from joint taxation are more likely to marry late in one year instead of early in the subsequent year. The results provide support for the hypothesis that pecuniary gains from joint taxation incentivise couples to prepone their marriages to the last quarter of a year, especially to December.
UK - You can benefit from Marriage Allowance if all the following apply: you're married or in a civil partnership. you do not pay income tax or your income is below your Personal Allowance (usually £12,500) your partner pays income tax at the basic rate, which usually means their income is between £12,501 and £50,000.
France - In France, both married and PACS couples are treated as one household for income tax purposes, so they can benefit from the Parts system that allows a couple to use both sets of rate bands to minimise income tax. This is not something to ignore if one partner has a higher income than the other.
USA - You can file jointly that may bring the person who earns more into a lower tax bracket and married couples get bigger tax breaks than single people in other instances, such as when they sell a house. A spouse without a job can put joint income into an IRA, which they otherwise wouldn't be able to do. And spouses also don't have to pay federal estate taxes when one member of the couple dies.
UAE - As a resident in the UAE and you are not a citizen then you don't have to pay any taxes! However we always recommend that you double check that you don't have to pay tax in your country of citizenship.
Canada - A significant tax benefit of marriage is spousal transfers. If your spouse or common-law partner does not need all of their non-refundable credits, they can transfer them to you to reduce your tax liability. ... These include the age amount, the pension income amount, the disability amount and unused tuition credits.
