In South Dakota, what are the financial impacts of marriage?

The fact that a person is married can impact many aspects of your financial life, such as insurance coverage, income tax status, responsibility for debt, property ownership, inheritance, and rights about that person’s children. When you get married, you may need to make changes to insurance policies, your will, financial accounts, benefits (like Social Security), or other arrangements regarding your living situation, business, or finances. Sometimes these changes become effective simply by getting married or divorced.
