The ex wives that never remarry get this benefit???!!!!!
"If you divorce after at least 10 years of marriage and don't remarry, you can collect retirement benefits on your former spouse's Social Security record if you are at least age 62 and if your former spouse is entitled to or receiving benefits. This is true whether your ex remarries or not."
I didn't know exes could have so much power. I'm dh's 2nd wife and as far as I know, his ex has yet to remarry. So for an example 20 years or more goes by, dh dies. I can't collect ss benefits because his ex wife who was married to him 12 years deserves it more than me?? OMG!
