spouse, spousal, footloose, gratification, in a row, work record


LET’S say you and your spouse haven’t had sex in so long that you can’t remember the last time you did. Not the day. Not the month. Maybe not even the season. Would you look for gratification elsewhere? Would you file for divorce? Or would you turn to your mate and say, “Honey, you know, I’ve been thinking. Why don’t we do it for the next 365 days in a row?”




" Your former wife can, indeed, file just for her divorced spousal benefit (equal to half of your full retirement benefit) when she reaches age 66," advises Boston University economist Larry Kotlikoff.
