Marriage Insurance

There is an entrepreneur in North Carolina who is currently attempting to create a company that provides marriage insurance to couples. With 50% of marriages ending in divorce, this seems like a brilliant idea, especially since people lose a substantial amount of their wealth after a divorce. When you are dividing one household into two and attempting to fund those two households with the same amount of income, this is bound to have a financial strain on the wealthiest of couples. We have insurance for just about anything these days, and protecting yourself in the event of a divorce, seems like a good idea. There is vacation insurance, wedding insurance, renters' insurance, not to mention car insurance and home owners' insurance. While I'm unsure as to how the marriage insurance would work, its an interesting concept and if this North Carolina entrepreneur is successful, before people walk down the aisle, they may be taking out an insurance policy to protect their investment in martial life.
