    Answered . This isn't really a debt/bankruptcy question. That said, if I understand you correctly, you are worried that if you begin living together again that your income will be counted against his benefit amount, thereby lowering it. This really hinges on what you want in your relationship, money aside. I would suggest sitting down with a retirement/estate planning specialist to go over options.
