Our nation’s tumultuous economy and the high-tempo deployment environment are both likely factors influencing the growing divorce rate among military couples in the last ten years. More military marriages ended in divorce in 2011 than civilian marriages. Longer and more frequent deployments put an enormous strain on families, and the added stress in the marital relationship is often more than either spouse can handle. California is home to a large part of the U.S. military, with twenty-one major military installations, and over two hundred thousand total military personnel assigned to locations within our state, so many military divorces take place here. Both spouses should be aware that divorced military spouses may be entitled to a portion of the member’s retirement pay, Commissary and Base Exchange privileges, Survivor Benefit Plan, and even healthcare coverage. If you are on either side of the equation – military member or non-member – be sure your rights and future benefits are protected.
