This is about spousal support
and your opinion. 50 yr old woman gave up her career, friends, family, apt, way of life at the beach that she loved to marry a 50 yr old man with 2 adult sons who were moving out), and a 15 yr son. Man told woman he would and wanted to take care of her and give her a wonderful life in their marriage
(typical wrds from dating couples/engaged couples...or men who are heavily pursuing a woman). Anyway, they're in love, they marry (they knew each other in high school). So he moves her to his home in another state, far away from everything and everyone who she loves. Total climate change too. She moves in and that the home is a frat house(yes literally), and he allows it. Home is in foreclosure, bank accounts overdrawn 10+ times cycle, 2 adults don't work, go to school, girlfriends stay there, dad pays for everything, few months later dad has credit card judgement, ex wife also threatens attorney for nonpayment of alimony
, all bills are 1-2 months late, checks for $200-400 being cashed by adult sons. Wife has found hidden mail in spare tire of his car. Wife finding out lies, deceit, total betrayal.Husband is glued to computer and tv for hours, ignoring wife. No empathy, no sympathy, no emotional support. Wife complains, cries, etc. He gets mad because she's not happy. His response for a year, "there's the door". Question.....if wife leaves because of fake, phoney, fraud, emotional abandonment
, is it possible to get spousal support in Virginia. She would be moving closer to her job of an hour away and very expensive. She has used her savings, 401k, her accounting/credit skills to help husband and stepsons with their credit problems but they dont take responsibility. Adult sons have been entitled and still are. Ex wife never paid child support
. Not involved with their lives for last 5 yrs except by phone/text. But husband has enabled them. Husband has also allowed both to humuliate and disrespect his new wife and spit in her face, cuss her and he has blamed her for everything wrong in the house. Adult sons and husband have teamed up against her. He doesnt discipline or enforce rules or payment of any bills on them and actually told wife to work full time so she wouldnt be around. Friends have told her to leave. She goes to therapist to help. Husband refuses to talk with anyone. He thinks he is right and she is wrong. She is trying to instill responsibility in stepsons and husband says none of her business. She had to take over finances, but husband does things behind her back and puts accounts in jeopardy again. She is covered under husbands insurance and doesnt have to work full time or work 3 jobs anymore. But she is abandoned emotionally and totally disrespected by him and offspring. Husband had claimed to be a christian man, saying he raised his sons alone. He lied to her and also had a woman on the side for 3 months while engaged. Total fraud. Husband is govt contractor who chooses to spend money instead of paying debt/bills. Does she have grounds for at least some spousal support? She stays because she says that she hopes things will be better next year when they move to city (both jobs) and boys have to get out. She is totally different person now, not the happy independent confident woman, and very depressed.
