Let's keep the math simple, and say that you make 10,000 a year.

If you're single, you'll be paying 2% of your income, solely for California state tax, that's $200.    But, then you decide to get married, and your partner wants to stay home with the children, as usually the reason to be in a marriage, and you still only earn $10,000, you will only be taxed at 1%,  which will be only $100.
