Study Says Fear Of Being Alone Keeps People In Bad Relationships

Study Says Fear Of Being Alone Keeps People In Bad Relationships

Commented Dec 5, 2013 at 19:18:04 in Divorce

“I think there's nothing worse than feeling lonely/alone while in a relationship. For me that's a sure sign to get out.”

“I would think economics overrides fear of being alone. If people could really afford to live without their "partner in a bad relationship" 90% would probably do it if money were not an issue at all. This includes saving money as well. I know people who earn plenty but they stay coupled in a "loveless/stale relationship" to continue to split housing expenses which allows them to save and pad more towards an uncertain financial future.”

“Apparently it's all over for all of us. The weight alone will force California to snap off N. America, sink, taking a huge chunk of adjoing tectonic plate that'll erupt fissures from the planet's core flooding molten lava over the surface blackening the atmosphere, choking off vital oxygen to our rapidly dwindling population wiping out 95% of all species on Earth eventually leading to Judgement Day for the survivors before eternal damnation and the end of life in the Universe.

But that's just a guess.”

“How about people who have been uninsured at lousy jobs? Now their monthly expense go up between $200-$350+ per month depending on their age or they get PENALIZED?!?!?. Before they were hoping to not get sick and pay as they needed. NOW it's MANDATORY. This is a draconian tax increase disguised to benefit us. Bet your life Premiums will continue to go up annually. I'm not liking O-Care AT ALL and I'm an ultra-liberal. This O-Care dramatically needs an O-verhaul. Is there a minimal mandatory option for just major/catastrophic medical?”

drsolo on Oct 2, 2013 at 21:59:56

“Well paid but lousy jobs they can just get their insurance and move on. Poorly paid but lousy jobs they can get reduced rates/subsidies and they can still move on to better paid jobs. Hoping not to get sick and expecting me to pay for your emergency room visits? Yes, there is a minimal option/catastrophic that is very cheap. The premiums are based on income/ability to pay.”

“I'm very liberal but I don't think Obamacare is nearly affordable enough. It's Draconian, barely socialism. It's deepening the debt of the younger generations. My niece and nephew are both in their late 30's. They are artistic types, renters and single with nearly $75K in student loans each. Neither of them are insured because their small companies don't offer insurance. If they make $40K per year they're lucky, Under O-Care they'd have to pay another whopping 10% of their income - over $3500 a year mandatory to have insurance. Yes- some of the expense is subsidized by the government but THIS IS NOWHERE NEAR AFFFORDABLE!!! These younger generations are so cash-strapped it's a major national tragedy ALREADY... and now insurance is MANDATORY or you can get financially PENALIZED? Someone PLEASE HELP explain the logic here!!!”

mjtaylor22 on Oct 2, 2013 at 18:14:47

“not sure of their personal situation, but healthcare is not free....and if they make uder 46k approx..they get tax credits when they file.....ot thye could skip coverage pay the penalty, whichis cheaper, and if they have an accident without insurance.....good luck paying the full bill by yourself.........now these are private insurance companies.only thing obamacare does is make your state a group, (which was not possible before) so you policy is community rated instead of individually rated....”

“It is step one and it's all explained at: www.healthcare.gov.org I believe. I've been paying to a system I rarely use. I'm glad my tax dollars can help others. Why does the GOP hate Americans?”

“The cost depends on one's income. Healthcare insurance is an investment no one can afford to ignore. One bad circumstance and you and your family can be wiped out.”

moderateamerica on Oct 2, 2013 at 14:45:38

“I am in Texas, I have a family of 4, making $75,000 a year, I current pay $967.00 per month, I went on healthcare.gov website, here where the rate quotes I got: Gold Level $345.00 monthly, Silver Level $279.00 monthly, Bronze Level $194.00 monthly. Now to say Obamacare is not affordable would imply three things about you, either you don't have insurance and don't know what you are talking about, two either you simply lack the smarts to understand rates etc, or third, you simple have not put the time and effort into finding out what this law does and decided to listen to the political fountain heads to set your opinion about the law. I can say the rates I have been quoted are a blessing. Seeing my rates there is no reason to me why anyone in this country should not have health insurance now after Obamacare/ACA Law has gone into full effect.”

murly on Oct 2, 2013 at 14:39:08

“How much would they pay for insurance under our current system? I am caregiver for my blind, elderly mother and we live off her Social Security and pension and money from a house we are renting out. I buy my own insurance for $200 a month. My brother was denied coverage by private insurance because of a cataract and has to pay over $600 a month for a state plan. He and I will both save hundreds of dollars under the ACA.

It's also important to remember how much it would cost your niece and nephew if they remain uninsured and get cancer or have a stroke or become diabetic. A stay in the hospital for the uninsured could cost tens of thousands of dollars. Under our current system, people are losing their savings, their homes, and even their lives. Obamacare isn't perfect, but it's a step in the right direction.”

gundagaidog on Oct 2, 2013 at 14:37:37

“That $3500 is just the premiums. The co-pays and deductibles are on top of that although you can get subsidized for that also if your income is below the threshold of (I believe) $29,000.”

shaterra on Oct 2, 2013 at 14:33:23

“that's because the GOP and Insurance companies had their hands all over the drafting of the law... we need to extricate the GOP from the legislature and fix it to cut out the middle men, punish abuse and extend the plan to everyone and pay for it with taxes rather than fees. we can get the money to pay for it by ending subsidies to Exxon and other energy companies, stop paying monsanto and other companies to NOT use farmland and other money giveaways we don't need.”
