For some couples, getting married doesn’t change how secure they feel in a relationship, but for others, it’s a big difference. For one, if you join bank accounts, get on your spouse’s health plan or you buy a house together, it can bring about a sense of security that you never had before. There are benefits that come with being married, many of which are financial when it comes to assets, life insurance, etc. In most cases, the spouse is automatically the beneficiary of said assets, unless otherwise named in a will or other legal document. In some cases, these benefits are the ONLY reason a couple might decide to make it official, and security is never a bad thing.
