Married put

The 

Purchase

 of a put 

Option

 on a stock that is already owned. A 

Married put

 protects against a 

Decline

 in the price of the underlying stock. If the price declines, the stock can be sold at the higher price any time before expiration. Of course, if the stock price remains 

Neutral

 or increases, the 

Option

 is worthless and the premium is lost.
