A nonmilitary spouse cannot just choose the service member’s state or “inherit” or “adopt” that state upon marriage.

At a minimum, the spouse must have lived in that service member’s resident state before “claiming” it as their own resident state for MSRRA qualifications. The spouse must also be able to prove residency by being registered to vote, maintaining a driver’s license, and any other residency requirements of that state.
