This Tuesday on NBC's "Anderson", meaning Anderson Cooper the topic is:
Man-imony: Should Women Have to Pay Their Ex-Husbands Alimony?
Women are court-ordered to pay their ex-husbands alimony; how women can protect their money.
This is fricken news worthy??? What about "Why should men have to pay their wives alimony?" I am all for child support. But to ask the question that begs for equality for women to "pay" their fair share when the womens movement has been demanding "equality"!! Well carefull what you wish for sister.
Hell, Kobe Bryant's now ex-wife stands to get almost $100 million, YES MILLION, in property and cash for her divorce. For doing what? Just winning life's lottery because you snagged the right guy at the right time. Must have been exhausting work to get that kind of money. You would NEVER see that kind of pay out for a man married to a rich wife.
Remember that behind every double standard there is a unspoken single standard. I'm not sure what that single standard is, but it should not be that women can't earn a living. It is a fact that in the last census, 97% of alimony-payers were men and that women paying alimony is on the rise. But for god sakes alimony is not a lifetime pension!!
Gentlemen have a nice day and remeber "Death before divorce" because it seems that for no other reason it is cheaper and carries a shorter sentence to kill your ex-wife that to divorce her!
Rant off... no really this time.
(And I am happily married with no alimony or child support)
