    Obamacare Restrictions Lead Brooklyn Couple To Consider Divorce

    'We Would Save Thousands Of Dollars If We Got Divorced,' Woman Says

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — From website crashes to long holds on calls, the issues involved with the unveiling of the Affordable Care Act are well documented.

    But now, could it be breaking couples up?

    CBS 2’s Don Champion spoke to one Brooklyn couple on Wednesday who said they may be forced to get a divorce to get health insurance.

    Nona Willis Aronowitz and Aaron Cassara’s love affair began at a party in 2008.

    “We kissed on a bean bag chair,” Aronowitz said.

    A year later, it grew into a marriage at City Hall in Manhattan.

    “It was really sudden,” Aronowitz said. “It was basically because he needed health insurance, and I had a job that would give that to him.”

    But four years later, there is now irony in the fact the couple could soon divorce for the same reason.

    “After Obamacare has rolled out, we realized that we would save thousands of dollars if we got divorced,” Aronowitz said.

    Well it seems like the marriage was one made for insurance reasons in the first place. One could argue that perhaps that's not the most solid foundation for marriage.

    regardless, you support a President that is destroying marriages, middle class working class people that have never been without insurance. Our President is nothing but a low life criminal

    Marriages between two people of the same sex will destroy the sanctity of marriage

    Marriages arranged for the sole purpose of getting health insurance are sacred, God bless their hearts!

    Maybe they can just call Geico for 15 minutes to offset the increase.

    Deflection, deflection, deflection, I have never debated one of these before:
