    • I think it all depends on the state they live and the laws. Along with did he give up his career to be a FT homemaker. Also did the wife’s career prevent him from working.  

      It shouldn’t make a difference if it’s hubz or wife. Divorce sucks no matter what and the kids are always on the losing end!

    • Yes, punishment for her cheating. I dont care if it is a man or woman. Some sort of spousal support should be paid if you cheated. Just my opinion

    • I dont agree with the ” no fault ” law here in California. Yes maybe at times there is no fault just fall out of love then fine 50/50. but for the most part there is fault and it’s usually for cheating or abuse which cheating can fall under the category of abuse.
      I believe if you cheat and are caught , divorcing either man or woman you would get no spousal support. Divide the property, child support but the spouse that cheated forfitted any need for help when they lied and forfitted the marriage
      No reason to cheat. Walk away first

    • If either a man or woman cheats, that person has now forfeited their right to anything, IMO, and that person is now responsible for forking out the dough, and if the woman was the cheater and she has no earnings, then she better get a job fast...in my eyes, “you play, you pay“...and if someone is that unhappy in a marriage, then be the better person and admit it, get a divorce and move on..yes, the kids do suffer.

    • heart @ Annie , hmmmmm great point. I was going on assumption that the one cheating was making less. So , it changes things. I guess I to me I don’t think if you have cheated are untittled to 50/50.
      It’s more probably an emotional response. But I have been thinking on it and as much as it gulls me, I guess 50/50 is the only way to go. I just think if you cheat somehow there needs to be accountability. And unfortunately financial hits hardest. I know when I got divorced I just wanted out and away I gave him everything except my son. So, who’s to say.
      My god I just rambled without a clear thought here.
      I know I ramble but there is usually a point somewhere. Sry.  Laughing at myself now
