Divorce Insurance


Safeguard Guaranty, an insurance company, is now offering divorce insurance. It starts at $16 a month which will get you $1200 in the event of a split with your significant other. Some people claim that having a prenuptial agreement is like saying you expect to fail. If so, what the heck does this say?

If someone is selling, then you can bet your sweat bibbie that someone is buying.

That picture looks familiar! :lol:

A pre-nup is cheaper overall and will accomplish the same thing, so what's the point?

I'd think that kind of monthly money would be better spent on life insurance than divorce insurance. At least it's providing for your kids future etc even if you designate it for a college fund. A divorced spouse wouldn't even contest that.

$16x48(months)=$768 considering they get interest on the payments, the insurance company isn't taking much of a risk is it? just another scam.

You also aren't figuring in the income taxes etc on the payout Math Wiz.

Sounds like we got us a seller or promoter of the product defending it on here.. I really wish we'd go to just registered users only that can post comments.

you make a great point sweetheart, except for the fact that you ARE married. 😉

I am now a registered user. And while I don't promote or sell the product, I am an actuary who happens to know the details of the plan and think it's a great idea.

that's cool, thanks for your opinion and welcome aboard whiz. i think the whole thing is romanceless, but some people will like and buy it. my best wishes to them that they never need to use it.
