Things have changed a lot since our grandparents and great-grandparents were young married couples. More women choose to continue on the career path while more men are taking on home-related duties. What works for some Atlanta families may not work for others, making our country more diverse than ever in terms of domestic relationships.
One thing that has been slow to change in these more modern times is men asking for spousal support. While some divorced men in Georgia do receive alimony, many others are hesitant to pursue this right. We would like to see this change because men continue to play a critical role in family dynamics regardless of their work outside the home.
Sometimes, this role looks much like bygone days with husbands working and wives giving up careers to care for the home. However, more and more often, men are staying at home while the wife builds a career. If divorce enters the picture, these husbands may suffer financially unless they choose to pursue their right to spousal support.
We know about the stigma attached to men receiving alimony. Many men feel it will make them look weak or lazy to request support. We believe that the time has come for men to protect their financial interests when divorce is on the table. Pursuing spousal support can help these men start a new career, gain more education or lay a sturdy financial foundation upon which they can build a successful business.
If you are a husband in the midst of a divorce, we urge you to take another look at what even temporary spousal support can do for your future. Continue exploring our website if you would like to learn more.
