Question about Alimony and Divorce Settlements: Why?

The situation I see fairly often is that when a couple gets divorced, one of them gets a settlement and alimony payments. This is usually, although I'm sure not always, the wife. This is also the wife when she has been a stay-at-home. SO, my question is this: The husband supports her, and pays for her living needs for years, yet she is entitled to settlment money why? Why should she get more money in a settlement, then even more in alimony payments, when her husband basically gave her money for the entire marriage? I am especially curious when it is the wife whom initated the divorce.
