    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.

    The courts always favor the Woman, especially if there are children involved. It's just the way it always has been.
