I am currently separated from my husband, he resides in montana and I have moved to Colorado. I do not want a divorce however he may be filing soon. He is 67 and I am 61 I want to stay married to him because I would like to get his social security if he passes away. Neither one of us will get married again, My husband has cancer is in remission and his life span is between 2 to 10 years. He is afraid I will take everything from his children if we dont get a divorce. I just want the social security for my old age nothing else so I suggested a legal separation. I dont want to hurt my husband finacially but I invested 12 years was a fairly decent wife and I just want to be taken care of in my old age. I should mention the kids, his and mine came between us and we lost a connection, he is a good man and I dont want to ruin him, just want security in my old age :confused: Have to be married ten years to get social security we have been married 5 1/2 years, together 12. Does this sound like to much to ask under the circumstances?
