Pensions for spouses who do not work

Pensions for spouses who do not work

Just heard the proposal on pension for housewives to receive the pension their husband was eligible for on the latter's demise. Why restrict to housewives? My husband does not work full-time due to disabilities and I am the wage earner; why should he not be eligible to receive the pension I am eligible to if I pass away? Gender bias needs to be removed from all proposals.
