The whole point of alimony should be if the wife has sacrificed her career, either by staying home and raising children (which should be a mutual decision on the part of both parents, not just hers, or his), or by moving every time her husband gets a transfer/promotion, that she shouldn't be left with nothing if he leaves her (or cheats on her or beats her and she leaves him). I'm good with that. I'm not good with awarding alimony in no-fault divorces, or in cases where she earns more money than he does, or in cases where she chooses to leave because she "feels unfulfilled" whatever the hell that means. Common sense needs to be applied to the concept.
