Life Insurance for the Engaged or Married Couple

Getting Married

Life changes. Especially when you are newly engaged or married. How can life insurance help?  With these changes your situation and risks change as well.

Who thought that a year ago you would be married and putting a down payment on a house? And with that change the talk of starting a family. When you first bought your term life insurance policy, your perspective and purpose was different. As you enter this new phase of your life, your life insurance should be reviewed and updated to meet the new changes.  

How devastating would the loss be to your new spouse to not only lose you, but lose the ability to keep the brand new house you just purchased? Not to mention the hopes and dreams you had for sending your children to the college of their choice. There’s also the potential loss of a secure retirement. Hard to realize that with that loss, the potential to have a two income household is now cut in half leaving the other spouse to save for their retirement on their own. 

We do our best to plan in life to reduce and eliminate these risks but one never knows what life will throw our way. Life is busy and sometimes we have a tendency to push aside and ignore the things we really don’t want to think about. Yet for the hour it took you to cook dinner, work out, go to soccer practice, drive the kids to get new sneakers, you could give yourself the complete peace of mind knowing you talked to a licensed insurance agent to find out the best life insurance to fit your needs in case of a catastrophic loss. 

When life changes, it’s important that you rise to the occasion and adjust to those changes to protect yourself and your family from the ever present risk of loss.
