I am female & have been living with boyfriend for 7 yrs . In VT , opposite sex unmarried couples can qualify for domestic partnership if they meet a few qualifications . We meet most , but would have to get joint bank account . I need health insurance after going without for almost 3 yrs , ( b / c most state Medicare / medicaid ins . require you to include financial info for everyone in a household , in order to qualify . If I included his , I wouldn't qualify , even though he makes good money , he gives fifty five percent to his ex wife & after his bills , his income is pathetic ) . . . But I need health insurance I am wondering if I would be responsible for his debt if I signed into a domestic partnership ? His divorce agent states his alimony & promissory note for second mortgage with his ex . . .
