So the economy is also to blame for keeping bad marriages together


It's hard to tell behind the plastic, but those vows of love have become vows of shared health insurance.

According to a press release, more than half of the respondents to the latest survey of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) are citing a drop in divorce filings during the current recession. In all, 57% of the attorneys have noted fewer divorce filings since the last quarter of 2008.

“The current economic climate is proving to be far more unforgiving than estranged couples seeking a divorce,” said Gary Nickelson, president of the AAML. “Forced to weigh damaged marriages against tight budgets and uncertain financial outlooks, many spouses seem more willing to try and wait out the recessionary storm.”

Great. So you’re stuck living that schmuck  just because you can’t afford a way out. This might be sadder than the weight gain.

Then again, I would not mind a quickie marriage for some health benefits. Just saying.
