Driving away from the reception in a blue convertible with balloons flapping in the wind, you're headed for a bright future. Together, you both dream of a nice home, a good education for the kids and a comfortable retirement.
Enjoy these early carefree days, but make sure you talk to an insurance professional sometime soon, now that you're financially dependent on one another. As a married couple, you share a life together, but you also share each other's financial obligations.
What if one of you were to die tomorrow? Would the surviving spouse have enough money to pay for your final expenses, eliminate debts such as credit-card balances and car loans, and buy some time to be able to adjust to a new way of life? Life insurance can help ensure that these financial goals will be met in the tragic event that one of you were to die prematurely.
