Husbands may want to protect their family by purchasing life insurance on their wife so that there is no financial stress upon the passing of the wife.
Consider everything your wife does for your family, from shopping, to cleaning to cooking to running errands, to picking up the kids after school and taking them to the doctor, among all the other things she does.
Now, imagine how many hours she works at home and perhaps outside of the home, and her total contribution to your family.
It would cost quite a bit to replace her efforts, and life insurance can help accomplish that goal.
But, in order to make an accurate estimate of how much life insurance you really need for your wife, you'll want to use a life insurance needs calculator.
