The only "improvement" required is in my ex's department. I'm self-sufficient (always have been). SS is the only way I can recoup a small percentage of my losses.


easy answer - don't get married... don't procreate...

be sure to be prepared to look after yourself when you are a old man, all alone, surrounded by your "wealth"

I agree that your spouse may owe you money however SS is a bad remedy. My ex absconded with a lot of money during my marriage that I worked extremely hard to earn. However, I didn't and wouldn't pursue SS. There needs to be remedies for our types of situations but SS isn't it. SS implies that an ex-spouse is a dependent and it encourages too many women to sit around and not be financially responsible in marriage and after marriage.
