Will my insurance be cheaper now that I am married?

Will I see a decrease in my insurance now that we are married? My husband and I tied the knot last month and now we are finally starting to update all the paperwork in our lives. I had actually added him to my insurance a few years ago. Aside from my name change, will everything else stay the same?

Answer
“Congratulations on the big day! You have a ton of paperwork to change after you get married; however, you already have a good headstart on your car insurance policy.
One of the benefits of getting married is that your current insurance company may offer a marriage discount, saving up to 10% off your insurance!
Statistically, married drivers file fewer claims and are involved in fewer accidents than their single counterparts. Even though you both have been listed on a policy together for a while, now you will be deemed a lower risk.
Married drivers are also more likely to bundle auto and home insurance with the same company, which is another great way for additional savings.
