I’m in such a very unhappy marriage, and I feel my husband wants a divorce. My question is: if we divorce, will I receive his social security benefits upon his death? And if he remarries, I’m assuming his 2nd wife would receive the benefits. Am I correct in this assumption? We have been married 30 years, and have both worked. I’d be so appreciative of any help you can give me about these questions.
