Things that never happen in Garvary, Part 3

In response to popular demand, mainly from Garvary, here's another aberration of the modern world yet to be foisted on the good burghers of Fermanagh (unless, of course, you know different) ...

Straight men to marry Context! Read on ;-)

Two heterosexual Canadian men are to tie the knot to enjoy the tax benefits of being a married couple. Bill Dalrymple, 56, and best friend Bryan Pinn, 65, are taking advantage of Canada's new same-sex marriage legislation. "I think it's a hoot," Mr Pinn told the Ottawa Sun.

But the two, both previously married to women, insist there is a serious issue behind the stunt. "There are significant tax implications that we don't think the government has thought through," Mr Pinn said. Mr. Dalrymple has been to see a lawyer already and there are no laws in marriage that define sexual preference. The 'couple' have still to set the date.

As far as I know (I'm not married) you get taxed more once you married. When you file your yearly income tax you get put into a different tax bracket.
