Do you agree with alimony?

Do you think a woman should get alimony after a divorce?

Do you think that it should be on a temporary basis until the woman is able to secure a stable job?

Should it be given to a woman who decides to not work and live off of alimony and child support
because she wants to stay at home?

 

Should your ex support you for years simply because you were once married to him?

 

i think if it is for a small amount of time, so you can get on your feet and start working again, then its fine

If you're using that as your sole income and refuse to work, i find that pretty pathetic

I only agree with it for a short amount of time if a woman who stayed at home needs to acquire a skill or something like that. It's almost never granted where I live & if it is, it's for a very short amount of time.

 either do I,

it seems so silly to me, you end your relationship with a man, yet expect him to pay for your life.

no thank you

I agree with alimony if it's agreed on by the couple. I have an alimony agreement as part of my pre-nup.

There are many different variables to consider for this. It all depends on the circumstances but I do not think everyone should qualify for alimony just because they were married to the person for x amount of years.

Honestly no I don't agree with it unless the woman was disabled or unable to work.
