 IRS Innocent Spouse
Either spouse is temporarily absent from the household and it is reasonable to assume that the absent spouse will return to the household, and the household or a substantially equivalent household is maintained in anticipation of the absent spouse's return.
If your spouse transfers property (or the right to property) to you for the main purpose of avoiding tax or payment of tax, the tax liability allocated to you will be increased by the fair market value of the property on the date of the transfer.
For example, you and your spouse file a joint return on which you report $10,000 of income and deductions, but you knew that your spouse was not reporting $5,000 of dividends.

 Innocent Spouse Rule
Innocent spouse relief applies only to tax liability that arises from an "erroneous item." That means you can't use this provision for relief if you sign a correct return and your spouse simply fails to pay the amount shown on the tax return.
If you had reason to believe your spouse was cheating to the extent of a few hundred dollars and it turned out to be many thousands, you should only have to pay the smaller amount.
For example, if the judge feels that you had a high standard of living while your spouse was cheating on taxes, you could be stuck paying the tax bill even though you didn't know about the cheating and had no reason to know.

The best way to understand irrational behavior on the part of your spouse is to read and understand the three divorces, and pay particularly close attention to the emotional divorce.

It's okay for your spouse to tell your children or your friends what a terrible person you are and for you not to respond in kind, because your children and your friends will ultimately respect you more for keeping your mouth shut.
