Survivors benefits and remarrying

i receive survivor benefits for me and my son. I will get remarried in dec and I know my benefits will stop. When we file a joint return will I need to claim my benefits if I have no other income? Will my husbands income then help determine whether my benefits are taxable even though we weren't married all year? Also they make you pay back 1 dollar for every two dollars made over a certain amount. Since I have no income that usually doesn't effect me. But will they go back and add in my husbands income to that allowed amount even if we weren't married all year. Very confused
