Congratulations! This is a momentous occasion. Getting married means you will be building your life this day forward with another person. This joining of lives includes moving in together under one roof and more often than not, combining your finances. You should start considering your financial future right now, and that means purchasing life insurance for both you and your spouse.
If you love someone, you need life insurance. It’s hard to imagine the worst when you’re just starting your new life with the one you love, but tragedy can strike at any moment and tomorrow is never a guarantee. You will want to make sure that your spouse is protected should something happen to you.
Think about it. When a couple combines their incomes, they tend to take on bigger financial obligations, like buying a house or having children. If you plan ahead, life insurance can ensure that the remaining spouse can continue to pay the mortgage without risk of foreclosure, and also take care of the kids.
Also, consider this: Life insurance is cheaper when you are young and healthy. Purchase a life insurance policy now and you can expect to pay much less than if you had waited. You could also develop a medical condition that makes you uninsurable later in life.
I’m ready to start protecting my family’s financial future.
