Manimony: Alimony for dudes
Men who declined to ask for manimony despite having a spouse who earned significantly more cited several factors including being able to take care of themselves and fear of asking for too much after already getting custody for a significant period of time. One reason for the trend to offering financial support is that more males have become primary caregivers, putting careers on hold while they took care of the children and home.
No matter what your view on divorce is I hope you can agree that men should get a fair shake if they are on the bottom end of the relationship bread winning. I can't help but be impressed by the courts treating men equally in this regard. It would be nice to see if they could find it in their hearts to keep in mind that the equipment in your pants shouldn't automatically disqualify you from custody or auto qualify you for child support.
Don't forget a divorce can wreak havoc on your finances, so plan accordingly. Have a differing opinion on "manimony"? Sound off below!
