""These days women work and earn their own benefit."

And those that don't are to sent into exile?

What were they living on while they weren't working? If govt assistance, that continues. If a husband's income, that continues. "

Life used to be quite a lot simpler - now more folks get
divorced even late in life. Without the "half" benefit, there
would a few ladies hurting more than they already are.

Now if they are widowed - then they could collect. But there would still
be pain. Kind of goes with the territory.
