Obamacare not only provides health care coverage but decreases the divorce rate among baby boomers. Many states have and or had a limit on how much a married couple could have in financial assets in order to qualify for Medicaid health coverage. This had a negative effect on those in lower income brackets. For those, considered low income, if a health issue was to arise, they were unable to obtain health coverage unless they used all of their savings and other financial assets. In turn, more divorces occurred for the primary reason of protecting the spouse’s personal assets while still being able to qualify for Medicaid for the sick spouse.
