I had a ex that left after 9 years of marriage, probably 12 years AD. Luckily I waited her out. I wouldn't sign and she was wanting to marry (again) to a bigger money bag than me. She finally signed off of my mil ret. I was young enough to probably bale if she would have been awarded it. Didn't get married again until about 18 1/2 years AD because of this. (Shhhhh ,Don't tell my current wife)
