Rapmaster2000: Stupid biatch ex-wife left me for .38 Special and the judge let her take my Camaro. Not just one guy in .38 Special I'll add.She is dating .38 Special.
Lackofname: Say, how will gay marriage effect alimony?
doyner: If you've been married 20 years and gave up most opportunities for a career, I can see long-term alimony. But being married for 18 months shouldn't entitle anyone to a life-long annuity. Could be fair if they had a formula linking it to time served.
Tr0mBoNe: What if you never had a carrer and are just a lazy coont?
Kome: I was under the assumption this was already the case in Florida, because of how my parents' divorce went down. My parents were married for about 16 years before that ended. When I came along, my mom gave up being an RN to be a stay-at-home mom while dad, the doctor, worked. He managed to only have to pay alimony for like 3 years. Meanwhile, my mom had to jump from job to job to job - hotel desk staff, secretary for an interior designer, transcriptionist, etc. - to be able to keep the kids fed and with a roof over our head.Of course, my mom's lawyer was so inept and without the slightest hint of humanity that he tried to convince her to be a stripper if she needed to find a good-paying job because fighting to get alimony (oh yea, and child support, since a man pulling down six-figures would be too burdened to have to pay child support until we all turned 18, according to how the judge ruled) would be a waste of time.
SlothB77: Those receiving alimony can no longer tap into the paychecks of their ex-spouse's new husband or wifewhoa, this was happening? If I marry someone who got divorced and is paying alimony, my spouse's divorcee could tap into my paychecks for alimony? That is farking ridiculous.
Jim_Callahan: State Rep. Cynthia Stafford, a Miami Democrat, called the bill "one-sided, anti-woman and mean-spirited."So, which of the provisions are one-sided, anti-woman, or mean-spirited?-- barring payments from lasting more than half the duration of a marriage-- benefit caps based on salary-- equal child custody by default (primarily in no-fault divorce)... because all of those things sound eminently sensible to the point of "why haven't they always been like that?" to me.//I mean, it's Fox News, I guess they could be leaving out some significant part of the bill to up the outrage quotient.
Fizpez: So to summarize: get cheated on, get financially pummeled because you have a penis, and get prevented from getting married again because ... well, hell if know why
DrewCurtisJr: Don't they do that currently? Take into account the length and financial contributions of each in the marriage?
adamgreeney: This has to be one of the most blatantly sexist headlines I've ever seen on fark. Wow
