When parents split, who gets the kids' insurance premiums? p2

There are so many i's to dot and t's to cross in a divorce.

It would be a great idea if you could buy insurance against divorce -- something with a higher deductible for marriages that didn't last long, or rates that adjusted up or down as your children grew up. Teenagers add more stress to a household, so the rates would be higher to cover the increased risk of splitting up. Rates and deductibles could also be different for couples that choose divorce mediation over litigation.
