Yes, she can waive your pension if she so chooses to do so.  You would need to put very specific language in the Stipulation of Settlement.  I STRONGLY suggest that all the numbers go in their too: what the marital value of the pension is, her portion of that number and that she understands she is waiving it.  Have her see her wone lawyer to explain.  Good luck.
