I can discuss this with you, as can the other experts, but the issue here is going to be determined by the wording of the pension "plan". Is this a pension from Italy or the US? Do you have a copy of the pension plan documents in English? Has anyone from the pension plan or the company told you whether she could or could not keep the pension if she remarries?
