I guess if you fear or suspect your spouse is doing something fishy and you haven't talked about it and don't know about it completely, you should probably file separately as in single head of house hold by getting a divorce and running away.

Thanks for the info! In the back of my mind I knew it was usually best to file a joint return if you are married. But I wasn't aware of any instances where it would make sense to file separately. Hopefully no one files a separate return due to the second bullet point...

That sounds about right. In 10 years, I've seen very, very few married, filing separate returns. And most of those are remarried, older couples that want to keep things separate since they have for years and years.
