Divorce is often a very emotional time in the lives of the people in question. Because of this, they often tend to overlook key aspects of what the divorce will mean in the distant future.
Social Security benefits are only one of those things. If you and your spouse have been married for over 10 years, you may qualify to draw from the other's Social Security after retirement. However, it is a topic that needs to be looked into carefully to avoid problems.
