when getting beaten by your husband is a pre-existing condition
September 15, 2009
Tongue in cheek there. Being beaten by your husband is according to insurance companies literally a “pre-existing condition.” I wonder what happens when someone beats on the kids….
“It turns out that in eight states, plus the District of Columbia, getting beaten up by your spouse is a pre-existing condition.
“Under the cold logic of the insurance industry, it makes perfect sense: If you are in a marriage with someone who has beaten you in the past, you’re more likely to get beaten again than the average person and are therefore more expensive to insure.”
