8 Love Insurance

This is one of those insurance policies that you must have but you would have never heard of it. A photographer had decided to opt for this policy for the model he was filming in case she left her. Incidentally the model ended up doing the same and the policy helped the photographer recover the losses which is mostly unusual but okay

There are several other potential uses here. For example think your lady friend goes all hyped up and then it becomes hard to love a crazy woman; that’s a lot of pain, heart break and suffering (not to mention all the time, dinners, flowers and other gifts you have showered her with and losses amounting to a high amount).In presence of this insurance you can minimize the financial impact of a break-up. Mention this with you partner and you might receive a look of disdain. Nevertheless it may be a very useful option.
