So I was reading this month's Glamour on a road trip and there's some article about how more women are having to pay alimony because our greater career success and how women feel this is unfair. The one woman married a guy 30 years older than her who had been married 4 times before. She was making a million dollars a year when they divorced. 1) Did you not see the divorce coming? and 2) You make a million a year lady!
The author mentioned that it's not fair because women pull more weight around the house and that is not taken into consideration. Is that always true? And does that negate the fact that a husband might have given up a career to look after kids so the wife could work and support the family financially? Dude, does this mean if my husband vacuums too much he can argue I shouldn't get alimony in case of divorce?
Someone please tell me I'm not crazy. I'm sure there are many cases of divorce in which the settlements are unfair, but I'm not really understanding why women just get a pass for being women. Talk about having your cake and eating it too. Mmm...cake.
