Not Married? You’ll Pay More For Car Insurance

single man weldingThere is an episode of Sex and the City where Carrie attends a party for one of her married friends. At the party, someone steals her shoes. Her friend refuses to buy Carrie new shoes because she thinks it is irresponsible to spend a lot of money on shoes. Carrie thinks this is unfair given all the money she has spent on her friend’s special occasions (engagements, weddings, baby births, etc). Carrie realizes that she never gets anything special from her friends because she is single so she decides to celebrate herself and registers for the shoes. It is extremely funny and her friend ends up getting her the shoes. Yet, it makes you think about the deeper message. What do single people really get in life? Because, birthdays do not count – married people have birthdays too.

If you were thinking that maybe because you were single you would pay less for car insurance, you would be wrong again. On the contrary, when you get married, your insurance rates actually go down. Why? Apparently, marriage equals responsibility.

Not only will your individual policy go down if you are married, but you can also most likely sign up for a group policy and save even more money. So, if you are looking for a reason to propose to your girlfriend, this could be the one you are looking for.
