In Tennessee, the terms of the divorce will specify the conditions that alimony will stop. The obvious reasons for terminating alimony are the death or remarriage of the person receiving the payments. Since many spousal maintenance awards are for a fixed number of years, the lapse of that period of time will cause the termination of the payments.
If the divorce decree does not state that it will terminate if you get remarried, you getting remarried should not end it.
You should look at your divorce decree and see if there are any stipluations or cancelling events for your alimony. If not, you're not in jeopardy of losing it if you get remarried.
