Wow! I just joined this group and I must say it was so helpful to read all the previous comments. I too am divorced after a 32 yr marriage. I was glad to see that I'm not totally pathetic because I still have sadness and some internal pain after being divorced for about 6 years. Although I have a wonderful "man-friend" that adores me and treats me like a Queen, I still think of how my life should be now with my ex. Also, my M/F has some issues that he needs to work out so even though the treatment is ideal from him, the situation is not perfect. But that's another story. I just wanted to comment on all the helpful advice that I read and the reaffirmation that we are all in the same boat no matter what background or heritage we come from. It's nice to have these forums to express ourselves and offer that needed shoulder and words of support!
Now for my question...does anyone know how to take life insurance out on an ex? We cancelled what we had on each other and my government insurance had to be changed when we divorced. I get half his military retirement but no survivor's annuity since he remarried (another story also) and of course when he retired, we didn't think it would be necessary. I want to be sure that if he expires first, I have a lump sum that will compensate for the loss of the monthly annuity I currently receive. I have a nice income but still want to have this extra cushion.
Thanks to everyone.
