Help Me Answer This Question - IRS Are We Married or Not?

When 2 people fall in love and decide to marry they should be aware of each others debt. When 2 people get married they responsible for each others debt. We are fine with that. But.....

As 2 lesbians we do not receive the same benefits, 1300 of them, for being married. We are legal strangers to the federal government. So...

If the federal government does NOT recognize my marriage, how can they take my wifes tax refund to pay my debt?

I have sent this question to several Orgs. including the ACLU and have not received an answer.

It is not about the money. It is the principle. We are married or not.
Not viewed as married for taxes and not married for all the benefits.

They can't have their cake and eat it too.
