Young women who obtained insurance through their husband’s employer in past years now obtain insurance through their own employer, and therefore are not significantly affected by the shifts away from marriage.((Percheski,​ Christine, "Men as Dependents? Marriage and Changes in Health Insurance Coverage among Working-age Adults in the United States, 1988 to 2008," //Socius// 3 (2017): 2378023117709843.)) However, young men do not have any offsetting factors to supply for the benefits once supplied by marriage, and are increasingly left without their own employer coverage.((Percheski,​ Christine, "Men as Dependents?
