Life Insurance for a Couch Potato Husband

Raising a Family

Life Insurance is such a fun product. Why yes, fun and even exciting, because no other product can get a man more motivated and out of the recliner like the threat of being too out of shape to get even a mere standard rate on a life insurance policy. Oh yes ladies, it is true. Next time your man wants to spend all day long sitting around drinking soda,eating pizza and potato chips with the only exercise he gets is an occasional leap out of his seat when his team scores, simply remind him of how that behavior and diet doesn't bode well in protecting his family.

Life Insurance underwriters do not look kindly upon men in particular who have an abdominal girth that is larger than his chest, no chance for a super preferred rate there. Or how about a high sodium, sugar, and trans fat diet that could potentially lead to high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, heart problems, stroke, and the list goes on and on..... The irony of it all is that most men won’t admit that they are truly out of shape and living an unhealthy lifestyle when, in reality, they are, and if they do know, they simply don’t care because they might fear being without their “stuff” more than they do about losing their lives prematurely.

January is “Family Fit Lifestyle Month”, which is tough for most men during the most important part of the football season and with other fine sports that are taking place at this time. After all, unless we are actually playing or coaching in the game we are watching, whether our favorite team wins or loses has little to no bearing on the livelihood of our families. A Super Bowl win for most of us isn't putting food on the table for our families, or paying the mortgage or electric bill.

Life Insurance will! It will provide for our loved ones when we are gone. I doubt our favorite team will do that for us. So the next time your guy wants to put football before you and your children don’t be afraid to remind him of his true priorities. Men need that. Trust me I know, I’m one of them!
