'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.
