Dependent Care FSAs for child/dependent care expenses are limited to $5k by IRS regs, making it necessary to coordinate married couple Dep. Care elections/reimbursements.
Some caution about married couple participants- it's common for married couples to claim reimbursement for each other's medical expenses. I've discovered duplicate claim payment is possible, and can be exploited (corporate auditor and his wife, gotta love it). Duplicate claim payment detection is usually a function of the admin system and it's capabilities and limitations.

I'm wondering if it would be legal to limit FSA elections below the stated plan max based on marital status.
I will suggest no since that could be interpreted as a discrimination issue based on marital status
