Is it cheaper to have one person or two people on the same car for insurance?
I pay a good rate now. I'm wondering if it'll cost me more to add another person to the policy.

“In general, the cost of adding people to your car insurance policy depends on their driving history and their relationship to you.
If, for example, the person you add to your policy is a child, then your rate is all but guaranteed to go up because drivers under 25 are perceived to be very risky to insure. They’re also penalized for their lack of driving experience.
If the person you add to your policy is a spouse, then your rate may drop. Married couples tend to get discounts because they’re assumed to be more responsible and less likely to drive recklessly. “

"How is it legal to deny someone home insurance if they own a certain breed of dog? Seems unfair to me. "
Dogs' temperament can vary significantly based on the training and care they get from their owner. Writing off an entire breed due to some bad apples doesn't feel right to me.

Should I take out a 72-month loan for a Hyundai Accent if it's the only way I can afford it?
I want to purchase a new Hyundai Accent, but I can only afford it if I take out a 72-month loan. My dad advises against anything more than a 60-month loan. Should I take out this 72-month loan anyway?
