I am afraid I can't help regarding benefits etc and trust some of the members who do have experience will contribute.
I just wanted to say congratulations and I do hope you do get married and it has no financially adverse effect.
It's my 11th wedding anniversary today, can you tell I love marriage?

Whatever you decide I am very happy for you! I would call the social security office in your area or even the national 800 number and someone there can give you a better idea how marriage would affect your benefits. With a chronic illness, we have to make sure we have complete medical coverage.
Amanda23, Congratulations on your 11th anniversary!

To be safe call your social security office and they will confirm all of this for you.
Good Luck and again Congratulations! How Exciting! I've been married for 35 years and he has been a gem through all of this sclero stuff with me. Marriage is a blessing that's for sure.
