Yesterday, I posted about the struggles of Gital Dodelson, a 25 year old New Jersey resident who is fighting to obtain a Get – the bill which the husband gives to the wife in order to free her to marry again.

Automobile insurance can be a lifesaver if you are in an accident and your car is totaled. Not many of us are prepared for the unexpected expenses of an unexpected accident.
