    Yes, you get tax breaks, and additional ones for having kids.

    im not sure about this....but i think when you are single you can earn up to $4000 (in the USA) and not have to pay taxes on it, and when you get married (no children) that goes up to $10000.

    If you marry someone who doesnt work (ie. you support them) you get an even better tax break.

    what are the laws in the US concerning people from say the middle east who have four wives, can they maintain their marriages and get even bigger tax breaks?

    Somehow I doubt it...Isn't it illegal to have more than one wife here anyways?

    [rant]Probably, but that is ridiculous. The government has no business in people's private lives.[/rant]

    *edit* Adding some context to my rant.

    I just had to be sure. It seemed to make just as much sense if it was referring the one just above mine
