Absolutely not. I find the whole idea of paying alimony absurd.
Precisely. I mean what signal does it send? That women aren't capable of working and providing for themselves?
Sigh... I'm guessing though that in all other aspects, she wants to be equal with and have the same rights&privilegies that men do.
Yes. If she cheated and the marriage lasted such a short time, I think there's a good chance he won't have to pay or at least won't have to pay much/for a longer time.
it's according to IF they donated into the marriage in any way.
Good point ...
No , but there have been few cases where the wife even after cheating gets alimony
um no, the w hore shouldnt of cheated
Who are you talking about?
The usual rule of law is..".She'll get the gold mine. He get's the shaft". " Mister Johnny"
Each case needs to be studied in detail, but generally speaking, "cheaters" should not be rewarded - IMHO.
She should be going after the father of her kids for the child support - your friend was wise to trust his instincts on that. If I were the judge (and your side of the story proves true), there would be no alimony. She sounds like a real "gem".
The first husband should be in jail then, for not taking responsibility for his children.
Those poor kids don't sound like they have a chance... :(
That's so sad...
If she was a stay at home wife for that year then a one time pay out yes!!!<br />
Courts here would award $8000. +/- to such a woman or man!!!
Then she should get the car if she can keep up the payments!!!
Awww yea I guess
Might be she had a good reason ... so I think it depends on circumstances ... that is why there is a court process ... BTW I noticed that the focus is on women here ... in response to those here who have reacted with answers inferring a deserved punishment, what about the guys who cheat ... shouldn't the same behavior be met with a sentence to the poor house ... I think this is a matter to be worked on by the parties involved with a hopefully compassionate but discerning mediator or judge.
This sounds like it is a specific situation ... but every situation has more than one side to it I am sure.
Your original question was a very general one. BTW, and generally speaking ... sometimes, believe it or not, men do the same thing you are suggesting this hussy has done ... they use their spouse to raise the kids wash their clothes, and make the house work while they hang out with their friends (and girlfriends) at the bar ...
Probably because many times they are on the receiving end of free work that their spouse does not get compensated for because 'he' is the so-called bread-winner and 'she' doesn't get a pay check for what she does.
Depends on the exact circumstances how long they were together in total and if she like supported him at the beginning of their relationship....<br />
If they have known each other for 3 months and then got married and she cheated, then no.....
How stupid us the guy?
Not at all! Some guys don't realise that it takes two to get into a relationship ANC two to get out. If you effectively take your partner for granted they might stray. You have to work 24/7 at relationships
Pft she'll get that and more.
