The Real Reason for Supernatural Concepts
Remember back in 2013 when Kpop went into full supernatural concept mode? From EXO's Wolf, VIXX's On & On, Boyfriend's Bounce, etc, etc... there were vampires, aliens, werewolves galore. Nowadays in 2016, though, we're seeing a rise to realism. BTS dealing with drugs (I Need U) or Monsta X dealing with totalitarianism (All In) But, why? "Zombies are the perfect metaphor." (source) Basically, using the supernatural has always been a way of talking about real life issues, without actually bringing them up. For example, in Harry Potter House Elves would represent slaves, the discrimination and fear of werewolves represented how ridiculous racism is, etc. Fiction allows us to talk about important issues in a sly way. For example, VIXX's Hyde portrayed them as vampire-like, living in a spooky house and dark forest, growing black wings and almost being taken over by a monster. At its core, this is a song about dangerous relationships. A partner who is emotionally unstable, but charming. Hurting you but begging to have you back. This can be a metaphor for abusive relationships of all kinds. They repeat over and over that "that man isn't me, there is a crazy 'other me' inside of me." Just as abusers usually do after a moment of violent anger. Hiding this message behind the mask of "monsters" and "dark angels" makes it easier to consume and talk about. But take away the supernatural and its a serious issue they bring up. Another great example is Monster by Big Bang. They dress up as literal monsters, but talk about how just because they are different and not fitting into the society's mold they aren't bad people. It's an anthem for misfits, and a message to society to stop being so cruel. So why are we shedding the costumes now? Why are things suddenly more...real? We're done hiding. The problems can no longer stay hidden, we need to talk about them. No more using vampires and ghosts as metaphors, the general public is more comfortable discussing issues like depression, drugs, mental health, discrimination, etc. The move to realism means that we're being realistic about the problems - we're addressing them head on. That being said, there is nothing wrong with supernatural concepts being used to talk about issues! Often people can't understand something in its original form. For example, maybe someone doesn't see the need for LGBTQ+ rights. Give them a love story with a couple that is forced apart, never to be together (perhaps a vampire and a human??) because society says its unnatural. If while reading the story or watching the movie, that person feels upset about this poor couple torn apart by society, maybe they will see the correlation between their belief that gay marriage is wrong. Basically, I think that the constant changing of concept trends is fascinating and it means much more than we think!
Navigating Insurance in a Divorce
The end of a marriage introduces a host of new challenges to both of your lives. Navigating all the paperwork and division of assets can become quickly overwhelming at a time where your emotions are overtaxed and your future unclear. Fortunately, you have help. Dividing and finding new insurance policies for both of you is an often neglected matter to sort through, but it’s wise to include this topic of discussion early on in the process. Read on for important tips when it comes to handling your insurance policies in a divorce in order to save the both of you a bigger financial headache later on. Make Decisions Early Just like determining who gets your fine china in the divorce, make sure that before filing any divorce or separation paperwork that your insurance directives are clear and fair for all parties. Insurance coverage varies by several factors, including income status, residential status, marital status and other variables. It is likely best to set up your own insurance policy in the event of a divorce no matter what, so start to search around and request insurance quotes from reputable companies in your area. Above all, carefully look over your divorce decree before signing, as it will be challenging to change later on. Health Insurance Maintaining personal health insurance without a lapse in coverage is crucial to avoid both any expensive medical emergencies and any penalties at tax time for the uninsured. If your health insurance policy was covered by your spouse’s employer, don’t wait to find a new plan. Some states allow non-family members to be on a health insurance plan, while others do not. Check your state’s policy, or discuss with your soon to be ex spouse about what options are feasible for you. You may be able to remain covered on their plan, provided you pay for it yourself through COBRA for up to three years. If you or your spouse were covered by a policy provided through your employer, you’ll no longer be obligated to provide the coverage opportunity to them. Auto Insurance Once you’ve decided who gets which vehicle, you will both need your own car insurance policies. Your insurance agent will need to be notified about the divorce so they can remove your spouse as a covered driver on the policy. It’s possible that you will pay more for your own policy, as many carriers provide discounts for multiple cars on the same policy or for married couples. If you need to find your own policy, shop around for quotes from different agencies in order to get the best deal. If you have teenage drivers, decide whose policy will cover them. Most often, policies will cover families at the same residential address, so whomever they primarily live with. In some cases, they will need to be insured on both parents’ policies. Check with your agent to be sure of what your circumstances will require. Life Insurance If either of you have a life insurance policy, you’ve likely named your spouse as the primary beneficiary. Many will choose to keep things this way, especially if there are children involved. In the event of your death, a life insurance policy could be used to provide financial assistance to your children through tuition or child support payments. Life insurance is perhaps the insurance policy most overlooked in the event of a divorce. In fact, it’s so often neglected in divorce paperwork that many states will automatically dismiss an ex-spouse as the primary beneficiary during a divorce. Talk with your insurance agent or other financial advisor to determine what the best course of action will be for you and your situation. You may need to complete additional forms to either maintain your ex-spouse as beneficiary, or to transfer those rights to another individual. Home Insurance In most divorces, at least one partner will need to change residences. Depending on who keeps the primary home or residence, you will need to make changes to your homeowner insurance policies, including your possessions and other assets. If keeping the family home, your policy can be adjusted to include your name only. If you’re looking for a new place to live and are considering an apartment or lease, start researching renter’s insurance. Renter’s insurance will provide coverage for your possessions that are lost or damaged through vandalism, fire or theft. You will also be covered in case a visitor becomes injured, paying a portion of their medical fees. Divorce is something nobody wants to go through, but with careful consideration of your finances and life circumstances, you can better manage all the changes involved in going from a couple to a single individual. Keep in touch with a qualified insurance agent to make sure you’re not missing any details and maintain adequate coverage, so you don’t face any financial setbacks in the future.
