I think that's more about spousal benefits. Like people who were waiting for dragging their feet rushed now because of the war.

You heard about soldiers in the US getting married quick before heading to Iraq or Afghanistan I imagine this is not much different.

I'm pretty sure death benefits for a partner still require a legal partnership of some kind in most cases. And it sounds as if you're assuming that Western Europe is 'the rest of the world'.

I seriously doubt you're an expert on what the rules are for marital benefits in the entire world. And there's only one area of the world where its very likely that what you said is true. Western Europe.
