these fu*king marriage laws need to seriously be revamped. which simpin a.ss n*gga created these laws giving bi*ches all this money. she dont deserve that much.
when the marriage laws were first created it made sense though. because 1) it was almost always the man who initiated the divorce, 2) if a woman got divorced it was ultimately going to be very difficult for her to find another husband to support her, if at all, because she was viewed as she had already been used, she was second hand, 3) it was difficult for women to find decent paying work (they were either elementary school teachers, babysitters/nannies, secretaries, nurses, or stay at home moms). men back then didn't want "second hand" wives. in many cultures across the world this still exists where if a woman is divorced by her husband it's very difficult for her to find a second husband.
but in most situations in modern day america, it doesn't make sense... like when the women are initiating divorces with ultra-wealthy men. kobe's wife was just straight up waiting for their marriage to hit 10 years so she could take half of everything and get obscene amounts of child support that no kid needs... this made sense back in the 1970s but not anymore.
there needs to be a cap on how much a man needs to pay in alimony and child support. but people are starting to realize that:
