I was looking at this fox News report regarding Bullock / James scandal http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgG9ZWaSZrE&feature=popular it seems to me that family laws, presumably thought to protect and encourage the institution of family are becoming the biggest reason not to ever get married in many states around the world. It would be really annoying to see James walk away with half of what Bullock produced during the 5 years of marriage and pretty unfair. But generally speaking, why should one support an ex spouse in any way whatsoever, fault or no fault ? You get married, you get divorced, that's it, if there are no children both should walk away with their fortunes regardless if it was pre or post marriage income. It;s idiotic to ask a man to support his ex-wife. Those laws seem determined to kill the marriage , not to strengthen it. Only a lunatic would consider marriage with such laws.
