3 Things to Consider Before Getting Married

Congratulations, lovebirds! You’ve found the one and are ready to embark on a new journey together as newlyweds. Marriage brings many changes, including combining your lives and everything that comes with them. While moving in together and honeymooning may be exciting, it’s important not to overlook the practicalities of managing your assets as a couple. Here are three things to consider as newlyweds, or even before you tie the knot.

Auto Insurance

If you don’t already own or share a car together, you might have different auto policies from different insurance companies. However, as a married couple, it’s typically best to combine your policies into one. Why? Because you’ll get the convenience of having one bill to pay, and you might qualify for discounts as a result, since a policy with more than one vehicle is often cheaper than separate policies. It’s a win-win situation!

Home or Renter’s Insurance

If you’re moving in together or buying a new home, it’s time to talk insurance. Make sure your home or renter’s policy covers both of you and your new shared assets. This can include your electronics, furniture and any other personal belongings. Don’t worry, our OKFB agents can help you assess your coverage needs and make sure you’re protected in the event of a loss. Need another reason to combine home policies? Getting married typically tends to lower your premiums, though savings will depend on your specific policy.

Life Insurance

It’s not the most romantic conversation, but it’s important to discuss life insurance. If something were to happen to one of you, it’s crucial to ensure the other has financial protection. A life insurance policy can provide financial support for funeral expenses, debt and income replacement. Plus, the younger and healthier you are when you purchase life insurance, the less expensive the policy will be. Consider getting a policy for your new or soon-to-be spouse. We offer three types of Life Insurance policies: Term Life, Whole Life and Universal Life. Talk to your local OKFB agent to see which option is best for you and your family.

Combining your policies and considering life insurance for your new or soon-to-be spouse are key to discuss as a newlyweds or before getting married. These are practical steps that can help you save money, protect your assets and ensure that you and your partner are financially secure in the long run. When it comes to insurance, you can trust OKFB Insurance to be your partner every step of the way.
