Insurance is the price tag for being an adult. Heaven forbid something terrible happens to you, but if it does, insurance will be your lifeline. You pay for health insurance in case you get really sick. And if you have a car, you buy auto insurance in case you get in a serious accident. But do you really need to buy life insurance?
Maybe not. If you're single and don't have any children or other dependents, you may not need life insurance right now. That's because life insurance isn't really for the insured person — it's for the people who depend on that person financially.
