Alimony should only be paid in cases of secret adultery or in otherwise "happy" marriages. In most cases, Alimony is setup with prenups.
This shit happens every day. Don't pretend it doesn't need to be fixed. Even if it's as rare as you seem to believe, it ruins lives. Do you just not give a shit about that?

You don't get to just decide you're tired of your partner for no reason and then use them as a meal ticket.
When alimony is granted it should only exist to aid the payee's transition back into the workforce. Not be a permanent solution.
Isn't your whole thing not giving a shit about people who aren't you or your friends?Do you just not give a shit about that?
So now you care about other people?
No one ever gives me a specific case or a court decision.Or in Canada, the man who wound up killing himself over onerous alimony and child support?

I'm a man and i'm wondering can i get alimony? i mean if i am the one taking care of the household while she works ... well i should be able to get alimony. muahahaha now to find a rich hoochiemama.
I don't know, seems like a problem of this supposed magnitude ("The fact that, when it reaches the courts, the judges have such leeway to pull this shit is beyond reproach") ought to have some sort of actual, legal evidence you could bring up.
I can see a murder suicide story following this. It happens way to often, wife is a bitch, demands money, keeps kids away to prove a point, man kills himself and kid/s to get back at wife.
Terrible situation but this is what starts the ball rolling.

I'd like to see the arguments on exactly why this woman deserves $4000 a month personally and $3300 for the kids. Does he have 10 kids? Does she live in a mansion? All I read in the article was that she was "disabled", which in this day and age could mean a lot of things, she might be paraplegic, or she might be blind in one eye. Both are disabilities, but the difference in their severity is massive.
My wife and I live on roughly $2400 a month combined income. While we have no children, I know dozens of families who don't even make half of that and are still somehow able to care for their children. So I cannot reasonably see how this woman deserves over $7000 a month.
