You may have heard us talk about the issue of permanent alimony. If not, this is a pretty good primer.

The group can be found at www.njalimonyreform.org and if you care about this subject I strongly urge you to visit their site. I always point out this is only permanent alimony they are trying to reform.

No one is attempting to leave a young mother with kids in a lurch by taking away any safety nets in helping her get back on her feet and earn her own way after a divorce. It's the brat who feels entitled to lifelong take care of me forever alimony (often simply because the divorce has hurt someone's feelings and it becomes punitive) which is the problem, and that form of perpetual alimony which is the target here.

The site has plenty of permanent alimony horror stories, or you can always share your stories here by commenting below.
