It can mean more than you think, especially in the event of your death. Your ex might get some of your assets, even if you don't want him to! Even if you have a will or separation agreement saying otherwise, he can contest it as your legal spouse. Some pensions have unexpected rules about division of survivor benefits for spouses, even if long separated.
