I have been with my BF for 7 years now. We have one child together and I have two older kids and he has two older kids too. WE had planned to marry in February but Ifound out once I get married I would not qualify for the earned income tax credit for next year. I buy a lot of things for the kids at this time of the year like,clothes,shoes,eye glasses,class ring, pay for summer camp. And things they want like a phone, I was planning to but a newer car for one.I do love him very much just not sure if I'm ready to loose all the extra at the end of the year. So my question is...Do I or do I not get married?
