Is common law marriage ok here? Once again, not the matter that someone's life may have been saved with a diagnosis of cancer, but the overall emphasis is on cost...nobody worries if you live or die sometimes, only what you cost others...sad..if you develop a chronic condition, are you a "bad" body not worth medical care? Two employees laid off over the medical cost...one more reason not to place the burden of insurance on employers..it does make a difference to small company bottom lines for profits and some just can't make it with the additional overhead...a reason why many employers are dropping insurance coverage so they can focus on running a business rather than having the overhead such as this related to profit margins. Now this person is at fault for having a "bad body" and might be very unpopular with everyone...but what if the marriage was not common law...would this have made a difference as far as the medical care with the same scenario...he would still be the "bad body" that caused all of this...and how many others have done the same thing?
