Marrying for the Money

wedding rings.

Both Jezebel and the Freelancers Union recently linked to this New York Times article on people marrying (or divorcing) in order to get health insurance.

As one who is perpetually thankful for her hubby’s fabulous health insurance (it’s simple existence allowed me to follow my freelance dreams), I find this article especially relevant, for me and for all freelancers.

The hubby has been building his own freelance web design business on the side, when he’s not at his full-time job. He’d like nothing more than to pursue the web design full-time, but the thought of those thousands we’d have to pay for health insurance makes us nauseous.

How does health insurance factor into your own freelance efforts?
