Breadwinner Wives

Although alimony laws are supposed to  apply equally to men and women, women obtain more alimony awards than men.

Changing family roles may make a difference, however, like stay at home dads, working moms and working couples.

USA Today reports that 28% of women make more than their husbands when both spouses work, up from 16% in 1988.

This may change the trend in alimony awards.
