Alimony is legalized slavery. No one should be required to support another person in any way once a divorce has taken place.

      my boyfriends ex is trying to get permanent alimony in washington (not an alimony state) she has a 4 year finance degree, LPN, medical coding cert but does not want to work. He and I live together, no kids involved. Courts want to know my income for the purpose of calculating ability to pay. Are you Kidding????

      This is abuse of men's rights.

      Because alimony is for people who want an excuse not to work. I don't think anybody should be entitled to money from people they don't even associate any more.

      Divorce, is when a marriage ends. There is no sane reason for a man to continue paying for something that has already ended. Slavery has already been outlawed.

      It is because I am a man and I see no reason why this won't concern me? Since so many men are suffering this horrid thing called alimony.
