I am 52 and have not worked in an office setting since the internet. I am not very marketable. Of course, whatever money I am able to make he hopes he won't have to pay me as much support.

My research indicates he will most likely pay me support indefinitely.
You are likely correct. He would know this. Yours is a "traditional marriage" and you would be entitled to SS. You supported his career. If you add your age 52 to years married you more than exceed requirements - read up on "rule 65"
