True but it does work both ways. Some people who get SS don't want it to ever end and want it forever. They refuse to get off their hineys and upgrade education or go look for a job. Its their way of being supported by the ex for as long as possible after the marriage has ended.

Not saying everyone is like that, each situation is different but there are some who take advantage of things. The system does need a major overhaul.
