Obamacare’s Threat to Marriage and America’s Civil Society

In addition to a tsunami of glitches in online enrollment, Obamacare is designed with a payment structure that undercuts marriage and the family—two institutions that have historically provided the foundation for a sustainable and thriving civil society.

The law is structured to provide less support to a husband and wife than it would to the same couple if they were cohabiting. In essence, it will tax married couples to fund the benefits it provides to couples who cohabit, divorce, or never marry. The impact of this discrimination will affect couples at every income level and creates a scenario in which couples’ wisest financial decision would be to divorce or forgo tying the knot.
