59. I am in the same boat

If the ACA is struck down, my 21 year old will lose his insurance with me. He can't afford to buy a decent policy on his own, and I can't afford to buy one for him. Plus, he has a pre-existing condition that will be impossible to insure on the individual market.

I don't think it matters very much whether the SC strikes down the whole law, or just the mandate, except in terms of timing. If the whole thing is struck down, our kids will lose coverage at the next coverage interval. If just the mandate is struck down, it will take a little longer, but the whole law will eventually fall apart.
