Marry him for his health insurance plan? BernThis posted about a couple who did just that. It's becoming almost commonplace these days.
My husband's first marriage? They tied the knot in his hospital room. A marriage destined for good times, right?
He needed emergency abdominal surgery for a chronic illness and her health insurance (group) had a much lower deductable than his (individual). So they moved their wedding date AND the location. Eventually both insurance plans kicked in and they made out like bandits. Nice wedding gift (unlike my wedding gift from hell).
I believe this double-coverage windfall has been nixed by the crafty (we make the money here, not you) health insurance industry but it worked for them.
And me? Wife number two? All I have to show for it is a husband with a scarred belly and a mediocre story for my blog.
