On a more serious note, military retirement is able to be transfered to a spouse, whom you maryy, after you retire:

Interesting example. It seems to be more like insurance, though, because payments are made. In any event, the ending of a pension should not come as a surprise to the spouse:

Elect not to resume spouse SBP coverage, in which case the spouse will be notified and the election cannot be changed.


That still does not constitute an example where the spouse will be surprised when the pension ends.
