Florida’s alimony reform movement has persisted for the past six years. Unfortunately, the battle to reform alimony in our state has affected c of Florida spouses. Specifically, wives who were in long-term marriages and “homemakers” are now in their 50s and 60s.
Since these women often spent decades supporting their husbands’ education and careers, they missed many of their own career and educational opportunities. After years of tending to homes, children, and marriages, these women could be left in dire financial situations if alimony reform in Florida passes. This is because reform would end to their monthly alimony payments.
