Most of 2013 I was married, though there was a portion of the year that I was single. Because my spouse and I have unusual work situations (mixture of self-employment, business ownership, and "normal" employment), we are filing separately for 2013.
I didn't realize that I cannot contribute to a Roth IRA if I'm filing separately, so my first line of research was how do I undo this, and from what I found (here), it looks as if I simply withdraw the money that I put into it. If this is incorrect, let me know.
The question I have is that if I was single for half or less of the year, could I still keep the contributions in the Roth IRA because I wasn't married for the full year? Or does 2013 officially count for tax purposes as a married year and thus even if I earned $N in income when single, I am unable to contribute to a Roth IRA for those final single months?
