Is a marriage certificate required to file joint income tax return?

You must be married (and maybe iincl the handling some developing issues revolving around the life commitment things for gays in some states)...and there are instances of IRS auditors asking for the certificate to prove you are in fact a couple.
It is not required as part of the return or anything.
