You have been w/ your husband for many years, have kids and have dedicated your life to being a stay at home mom, you have dedicated yourself to your husband and children. Then one day for whatever reason, you find yourself getting a divorce. What are you going to do? You never went to college, don't have a trade and your soon to be ex was the breadwinner. As we all hear or know of someone in this situation, many men lie about their income to get out of paying child or spousal support or end up paying very little. Could you live off that? Many men also don't feel like they should have to pay and do whatever to run from this obligation.
Or what if heaven forbid, your spouse is in a terrible accident and passes? Or what if he gets a debilitating disease and will never be able to work again? Can you keep up with the lifestyle you and your children have? How will you pay bills, buy groceries, etc..? This is something that I see happens a lot. Lets say this Friday is the last time you see one of your husbands paychecks. What will you do?
