Hypothetical but Wondering

Laurel, DE(Zone 7a)

Two Questions:

1. Can an exwife collect social security benefits of the exhusband without some prior legal agreement if they hadd been married 10+ years?
2. Can a wife who is collecting ss also collect the ss of their deceased spouse or do they collect the larger amount of the 2.

Thanks for clarification.
