  1. hey so correct me if i'm wrong: been in a eingetragene Lebenspartnerschaft for several years now in Germany with my same-sex partner. we haven't 'upgraded' to a marriage or anything because we didn't see the point in that. (side question: is there a point?) we file our taxes together here in Germany and are both in the tax class 4 (as default when you get into a civil union or marriage).   the weird thing is when i file my taxes in the US, i'm filing as single because a civil union is not a marriage there (https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/answers-to-frequently-asked-questions-for-registered-domestic-partners-and-individuals-in-civil-unions   this feels like a strange contradiction... or i feel like i'm lying by filing as single. does anybody have a similar experience? am i missing something?
