Are Americans overvaluing their 'things'? [Video]

Most people subscribe to the belief that experiences are much more valuable than possessions. Nevertheless, life is a series of purchase decisions, most of them small, many of them big.

Regardless of their size, though, they're all "things" at the end of the day that can be replaced, especially with insurance.

Life, of course, can't be. Yet despite this truth, more people are financially protecting their belongings than their loved ones.

According to a recent poll from Life Happens, just fifty-five percent of families have life insurance coverage. That's a stark comparison to the sixty-seven percent with homeowners insurance and eighty percent with car insurance. 

After the loss of a loved one, life insurance gives families the protection to live life to the fullest, able to purchase the things that make experiences possible. Now that's a beautiful thing!
