Some insurance companies take your marital status into consideration. And we hate to break it to all the lonely hearts out there, but common-law and married couples sometimes get a cheaper rate. It seems pretty unfair, but if the insurance company has determined that couples get in fewer accidents, they’ll consider single people a bigger risk, and their premiums will cost more. However, not all insurance companies take marital status into consideration. A broker can shop around different insurance companies to find the plan that fits your life, whether you’re single, married, or it’s complicated.
