A: For the purpose of assigning an effective date for a compensation or pension claim, if the claim was pending as of September 4, 2013 (the date on which the President directed VA to cease enforcement of statutory provisions defining spouse and surviving spouse as a person of the opposite sex), the effective date will be assigned as if the laws barring VA's recognition of same-sex marriage had never been in effect.In some instances, this could mean an effective date as early as the date of marriage or as early as when VA received the claim.Generally, VA will accept a claimant's or applicant's assertion that he or she is married as sufficient evidence to establish a Veteran's marriage for the purpose of VA benefits and services.However, consistent with current policy (applicable to all marriage-based benefits), VA may pursue further development if an assertion concerning a marriage appears unreliable, but will not treat assertions regarding same-sex marriages any differently than assertions regarding opposite-sex marriages.One of my favorite quoted expression is: "By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail." (Benjamin Franklin - 1706-1790) But there are also many variants, that are 'close' to swindle practices, but not (yet) labeled as real illegal organizations.These are organizations that will use methods to keep you as long as possible as a paid customer, or those who ask far too much money for their services.It does not discriminate and can happen to anyone in any relationship, whether it’s one that is casual and short-term or serious and monogamous.
A: VA recognizes a Veterans marriage if the marriage was recognized under the law of the place where at least one of the parties resided when they were married or when the claimant became eligible for benefits.
I've seen this variously attributed to Plato and Lao Tzu.

Sent by Jerusa de Paula on December 21, 2002 Zsa Zsa said that a young woman should marry a man who is in his 40s. She, then at her sexual peak, should marry a man who is 18, now at his sexual peak.
