That's great you were married more than 10 years. How about being married 8 years with 3 children, spouse leaves to marry another and has 2 more children of the second marriage, leaves that second marriage and marries a third time to a person who already has 2 children, then dies. The pension was given to last spouse who was a named beneficiary, first spouse who has not remarried gets nothing because marriage was not longer than 10 years and does not even qualify for social security benefits. What a life!
