WHY IS PENSION (GIS) MEANS TESTED IT MEANS I AM SUPPORTING MY SPOUSE SHOULD I ?

My husband has retired but because my income is > $40K p.a. he gets no GIS only OAS and CPP which is $500 per month?

 

How does he pay for his share of the mortgage and other expenses with this monthly income ? I should divorce him because otherwise I am subsiding him and so what is the point of being married ?

 

Your thoughts please ?

 

Pension is not means tested in the USA or UK so why in Canada ?
