Marrying for health insurance.
Thank you for taking a few moments out of your day to view my story. My name is Terri Carlson. I am 45 and was born with a genetic immune disorder C-4 complement deficiency. I am currently on cobra health insurance (from my divorce, 2 years ago) but it runs out in a year. And now my current situation is that I can’t buy health insurance because of my pre- existing condition.
Of course, people marry for all sorts of reasons — and entire websites have been built around catering to those preferences, some to much public outrage. Will there ever be a future equilibrium where marrying for reasons other than “love, etc” is not taboo?
