Should a spouse be able to take out a life insurance policy on their spouse without their knowledge?


In light of the Colorado man who allegedly pushed his wealthy wife off a cliff, and who is also now being looked at for his first wife's murder after a car fell on her ...being he had taken out multi-million-dollar life insurance policies on both wives without their knowledge, do you think the life insurance companies should require that the spouse be notified when their spouse takes out a life insurance policy on them? He took out a 4.5 million dollar life insurance policy on his most recent wife. Photo courtesy of Flickr. Gives one pause as to "Until death do us part."

    Thank you so much, Paula, for the great answer. Yes, most all couples do have life insurance on each other; no question there. But wonder about the million dollar policies, although this woman was wealthy. LOL on the neighbors. Yes, he is spooky!

    I really think they are suspicious; why wouldn't they be? But they get that money monthly regardless (which has to be a good sum on that much!) and that is just how greedy they are. Murder just means they got money for nothing.

    Hi Genna, he certainly is and investigators are saying he researched several wealthy women before "choosing" her to marry. He also said he tried mouth-to-mouth, but her lipstick was not disturbed. I wondered too how they knew she had no knowledge.

    That is my thinking too ...and I did not realize one could take out a life insurance policy without the other knowing, which is suspicious to me! I would think that would raise a big red flag with the insurance companies. They should be notified.

    Thank you, Mahadeb Kar, I do hope that is the case, but I believe it is not. I know one can take out insurance on other family without their knowledge, like children and grandchildren too.
