couples are usually jointly ands severally liable regardless of ownership.

so if there were no SMI – the bill would be to both of them.- because they are married/are a couiple ( whats yours is mine and all that)

However, one of them iss “invisible” for ctax purposes and cannot be deemed to be liable – so the bill is addressed to the other partner, with a 25% discount.
