Joelle: So usually when people get married, they are buying a house together or somehow living together. Even if they are renting and they are relying on each other’s incomes to pay the monthly bills, you know, usually they share expenses in that way. So if one of them passes away unexpectedly, then the other might not be able to afford to live in the same house and pay the bills on a monthly basis. And it is just one more added thing to worry about when you’re suffering from this emotional loss that you know, that you didn’t expect.

Help protect the financial future you’re building together

Starting your life and building your dreams with the one you love is an exciting time! It’s also the perfect time to consider life insurance.

For many newlyweds, this is the first time in their lives that someone other than themselves is either wholly or partly dependent on them for financial support. With one less income to cover expenses like the mortgage, child care or other everyday expenses, you or your spouse may struggle financially.

It’s important for each spouse to have life insurance, because it helps protect both of your financial futures should you or your spouse pass away. Shockingly, almost one in five married couples have life insurance for only one spouse.¹ Having life insurance in place can help you or your loved one get though the grief without worrying about how the bills are going to be paid.
