In the past, women were always the recipients of spousal support. However, in recent years, more and more men have been receiving alimony. This is mainly because there has been an increase of working women climbing the corporate ladder as well as an increase of stay at home fathers.
Today, wives earn more than husbands in one-third of all marriages. If a man is going through a divorce and their partner earns more than them, they may be entitled to spousal support. Men usually seek spousal support for the following reasons:
- Their wife was the breadwinner so they gave up their career to be a stay at home dad and care for their children.
- To allow their wife to grow their career, they made sacrifices.
