Under current VA regulations, if you marry after the age of 55 your DIC benefits can continue.  Given your current age, any marriage at this point should not end receipt of the survivor benefits.

You can read more about how the age was only recently lowered from 57 to 55 (though you would have qualified under either law) here:  https://www.military.com/benefits/survivor-benefits/2021/06/30/remarriage-rules-relaxed-surviving-spouses-seeking-va-benefits.html

I am glad to hear that you are, after all these years, in a position that you are considering remarriage and I wish you all the best.

I hope this information helps. Please let me know if there is any part of your question I failed to answer or that may be unclear. If you need additional assistance, feel free to reply to this message.
