  1. Really; you believe that most wives are housewifes and have no income?
    It has been many years since the majority of married women did not work out of the home.

    Regardless, the wife is not an employee. Whichever spouse works, or both, the total household income is considered equally shared by both spouses.
    That is what marriage is about – the sharing of worldly goods.

    The rest of your post is incomprehensible.


  2. You’ve obviously asked this in the wrong place. Your question has nothing to do with US taxes. Try elsewhere, please.
