Doesn't car insurance bill go down after marriage ?

Asked over 1 year ago - Indianapolis, IN

We got married recently, and I have heard from a friend that his car insurance bill was slashed in half after marriage. I am driving my wife car ( 2012 Kia soul ) and she pays $800/year . I added my name on her policy , and we thought we could score a sweet discount but no such luck , they said there is no discount for being married!! but It is a multi-car discount.. is that right ? I have an old car which i rarely drive now ,but i pay very little for insurance ( different company ) $160/6 months, so what to do here to get a discount ?

    Answered . You and your new wife should meet with an independent insurance agent and discuss the type of coverage you need and have the agent shop around to many different companies to obtain you the best possible price. Like anything else, it pays to shop for insurance.
