i think if you use turbo tax you can file both ways, just don't submit them and it will show you which way is better. When I used to do taxes I know it was always better to file together because they penalize you more when you file married filing separately.
I understand that you don't want you DH to have to pay although if you file separately you may both owe taxes.
