My conern is that regarding my pension.
I was told by CALSTERs that I must either:
Get married and within six months my new bride is my beneficiary
My current ex-fiance would have to expire
After my new marriage if I get divorced, I could then name myself as the new beneficiary

death of my beneficiary
I get married and name a new beneficiary since she was never a spouse or partner
