So, I'm looking at staff jobs (braindump about that later), and I say to Jeff, "Hey, honey, wanna elope if I end up with a state job?" for you see, then he could get health insurance (the good state of North Carolina doesn't benefit domestic partners yet, though there's lobbying for it.)
So then I go look to see how much insurance costs.
For me, the employee, it would be free.
To add my hypothetical husband? FOUR HUNDRED TWENTY TWO DOLLARS AND SEVENTY FOUR CENTS. A MONTH.
