Corporate lawyer's involvement in Harold Hamm divorce trial: not so unusual
Easy vs. hard divorce states story: So stupidly wrong in so many ways! Here's what really matters.

Alimony still relevant for many, not so for many others

Leading Minneapolis family lawyer Nancy Zalusky Berg shared this article, commenting that "the law in Minnesota is very clear - every parent is expected to work - there is no such thing as a stay-at-home mom anymore."

For many men and women, that's reality, that's modernity, that's how it should be. "Alimony" strikes them as a form of medieval serfdom. But for many other families I deal with in Northern Virginia, contemporary life is not really as modern as that idealized vision of economically autonomous individuals. And in fact, maybe that vision is not truly modern at all. Minneapolis family lawyer Michael Boulette says that for many, marriage is still more than a passing association of economic producers and consumers. People still sacrifice individual career goals for the family's overall well-being. I agree.
