Re: “'Til Death Do Us Pay: Legislators Consider Divorcing Alimony Law

Why are we marginalizing folks based on gender? There are male and female payors. True, there may be more men and gender equity isn't quite there yet, but alimony laws as well as reform of the existing and outdated laws would address that. Most families have both persons working today to make ends meet. Often times if either spouse stays home and does make sacrifices which should be accounted for, it is not for an entire lifetime, it is for a few years when the children are young. Why does this entitle someone to be paid for the rest of their life?? In Mr. Fleming's case, his ex-wife is remarried and has a career of her own. One marriage contract has ended and she has entered into another. Why is he on the hook until death? These laws are not archaic, they are ANCIENT and need updating! If it were mostly women paying men, this would have been fixed YEARS ago!
