The money allowed her to buy a £2million home in Cheshire - which was the house where former Wales manager Gary Speed took his own life - and a holiday villa in Mallorca and she also gets £175,000-a-year personal maintenance for life.

Alimony is the screwing you get
for the screwing you got.

It’s almost becoming necessary for men to go through the Sharia Courts (in England) now if they get married, as none of this crap is permitted there.

Pretty soon, the same may be necessary here.

This will end soon. Not enough people under age 30 are marrying to continue.

Politics is a scam and we’re suckers for playing.

Alimony is the screwing you get for the screwing you got.

And the screwing you got was probably infrequent and lame.

Not to worry. Some new legal doctrine designed to give co-habitation the same status as marriage is sure to be established before this can take place.
