Romance v Inheritance Tax?









To the Editor
The Times

Dear Sir,

One prime reason for getting married in later life is to avoid paying George Osborne two tranches of inheritance tax and your report seems naïve in suggesting more romantic interpretations. It is of course iniquitous that those who prefer to cohabit because they disapprove of state intrusion into their intimate lives should have to compromise and wed or risk ruin.

Yours truly
Phillip Hodson
