If you make more money and your spouse leaves you, you may even end up paying temporary spousal support while they divorce you.
Many people in an unwelcome divorce wonder why they have to support someone who has decided to leave them.
The answer is simply that no one can be forced to stay married, and matrimonial law has been crafted to allow even a poor spouse to divorce without being pushed into crushing poverty.
In order to ensure that all parties have equal access to the court system, wealthier spouses are often required to provide funds to the spouse who has left them and filed for divorce.
It may not be fair to you, but legislators and judges consider it the most fair system they’ve identified so far.
