1040 form

The standard individual tax return form of the IRS.

1040 Form

A document that individuals and some corporations must file with the IRS each year. The 1040 form calculates income, deductions, and credits, and ultimately arrives at how much, if any, tax the filer owes for the year. The form itself is short, but many taxpayers must use additional forms to calculate how things like dividend income and capital gains are taxed on the 1040. See also: 1040EZ.

But if by marriage you mean a piece of paper signed in a fluorescent-lit city hall, that remnant of medieval property law that held that a woman is the chattel of her husband, that codified yardstick used as a moral bludgeon by bully preachers, that restrictive moral interpretation that perversely asserts marriage is marriage only if there is sexual monogamy, a line on a Federal 1040 form, and the intrusion of the state into those aspects of my life that are most sacred, mystical, and holy--if this is the kind of nonsense you mean by marriage, I am against it with all my heart.
