When it comes to Social Security, there is an advantage to being married. One spouse can take what is called a spousal benefit, up to 50% of the other spouse’s benefit. Let’s say you would receive $2000/mo. from Social Security but your spouse would only get $400. Your spouse can apply for the spousal benefit and receive $1000/mo. vs. the $400. This assumes claims are made at full retirement age.
