""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.
