    Answered . I agree with the previous answer....your remarriage should not affect your rights to a portion of your ex-husband's pension. However, this assumes that your were awarded a portion of his pension in the judgment and that a Qualified Domestic Relations Order was prepared and submitted to the administrator of the pension.
