For any of you ladies who took your husband's insurance after the marriage or vise versa , how long did it take to kick in? I have a degree in ballet education but I work a job that I'm not in love with strictly for insurance purposes (at dance, I'm an independant contractor and receive no benefits). At this time, I can only afford to teach dance once a week so I can ensure enough hours at my other job to keep my benefits. After the wedding I plan to leave my full time job so I can start teaching more dance classes. I want to start putting in applications now for more dance jobs but I'm just wondering when I will be able to leave the other job. TIA!
