It's about time so many of these women plan to get divorced after getting married. They don't want to work for their own money and want a free ride. Without exercise they become fat lazy slobs. I bet you the divorce rate drops a major percentage in this state.

This is the 21st century norms have changed and our alimony laws should reflect the new norms. Both men and women are victims of these antiquated laws. They should also respect some of the old laws like eliminating debtors prisons. This is archaic idea which this country dealt with in the 19th century and Judges are still putting people in debtors prisons because they fall behind in alimony payments because of the loss of a job..
These changes will benefit the children because of less financial pressure on the parties. New statutes will help each party to become independent contributing people who do not have their hand in the public dole.
All we want is fairness for all parties. We must realize that when a marriage dissolves that the standards of living will not be the same, how could they be if the financial situations have changed?
This will heal so many wrongs and help us to move on with our lives intact so that we can be better parents our children.
