Former Military Spouse

Former military spouse began in 2011 to encourage educated discussions about the Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act (USFSPA) in the hopes that any future changes would be fair and equitable to both the service member and former military spouse.

  • We’re dedicated to providing outstanding information to all who participate in the military divorce process.
  • We look forward to hearing comments and documented suggestions to keep service members and military spouses informed on USFSPA proposals.
  • We’re looking to expand to discuss life after divorce: everything from moving forward, finding new relationships, and financial security
  • Occasionally, we’ll just add something patriotic or a military life topic that we can relate to

We value your opinions. Please see our comment policy for more details on sharing your thoughts.

Comments on Military Divorce

Thank you for spending the time and effort to share your thoughts, even if you disagree, to help further educate others on the issues involved. Please adhere to our comment policy. Comments containing profanity or attacking others in a personal manner will not be approved. Please remember comments express the opinions of their authors.

Currently most comments will post live immediately. We aim to keep this Go Live policy on our site. There are some restrictions in place concerning length and links. Additionally, we may occasionally put all comments through moderation and appreciate your understanding when this happens.

We moderate comments. Occasionally, comments may be edited if deemed inappropriate.

Common Reasons for Editing Comments

  1. Using ‘Former Military Spouse’ as your name: Because this website is titled ‘Former Military Spouse,’ we do not allow you to post your username as ‘Former Military Spouse’ and will edit it and any references to it to be sure visitors can distinguish between reader comments and author comments
  2. Privacy: Posting private information such as an email between two parties, where the person posting the comment is neither the author or sender of the email, will be removed or edited out. (You may link to publicly posted emails.)
  3. Off Topic: Your comments do not relate to the topic on the page, the title or any subtitles.
  4. Length: Your comment is over 100 words and we believe you could have said it in less. (Please keep comments as short as possible.)
  5. Ranting: Unhelpful, emotional, or otherwise inappropriate comments will be removed.
  6. CAPITAL Letters: Posts where the entire text is in capital letters is interpreted as shouting and will not be accepted.
  7. Pure Advertisement: Your post has no discussion of the topic at hand and only comments on or lists a url to another site online.
  8. Inappropriate: This is a catch-all category and as we see examples of what we think is inappropriate, we will try to add them to the list above.
  9. Updates, Edits and Revisions: If we revise a page and feel your comment no longer pertains or will confuse new readers, we will delete it.


Just because a post mentions a side subject, does not mean that side subject is open for comment discussion.

Comments should focus on the main issue discussed on a page.

We aim to keep discussion comments focused on ONE issue per post to help readers clarify and understand the issue at hand. We hope this minimizes raising new tangent questions.

We look forward to hearing comments and documented suggestions to keep service members and military spouses informed on USFSPA proposals.
