Many people approaching divorce seem surprised that in today's gender equality-focused world, alimony is still an issue. In former generations, it was very common for wives to be full-time homemakers, without income from outside the family. Under those circumstances, alimony seemed appropriate. Now, however, many women have their own careers. Many earn more than their husbands. Sometimes husbands and fathers are stay-at-home parents and homemakers. Numerous variables are considered by family law judges as they consider whether to award spousal support to the wife or husband, long before a divorce is finalized.Did you work and support yourself and your spouse while he or she was in school to prepare for a profession as a doctor, lawyer or entrepreneur?
