Is there any case law where a husband's access to a pension is dependent on the date of his retirement date?

British Columbia, Canada

The following excerpt is from Beshara v. Kennedy, 1990 CanLII 965 (BC SC):

With the greatest of respect, I am unable to agree. I understand Rutherford to be saying exactly that. In Rutherford Mr. Justice Seaton refers to the California case of Gilmore v. Gilmore, 174 Cal. Rptr. 493 (1981). This case does not appear to have been presented, in its entirety, to the court in Littleproud. I have had the benefit of reading the full report and the principle is spelled out very clearly that once a pension is available, the wife's access to that pension should not be dependent on the husband's choice of date of retirement.
