It is possible. I say this because the court considers a number of factors in determining whether or not maintenance is appropriate and if so, how long of a period of time a spouse should receive maintenance and the amount of maintenance which should be awarded. The court must factors that include:
The length of the marriage;
The disparity in the earnings of the parties;
Whether there are children of the marriage and if so, which party will be the residential parent upon a dissolution of marriage;
whether one spouse has given up career opportunities due to the marriage;
The age of the parties;
The health of the parties;
Each party's ability to acquire income and assets in the future; and
The standard of living established during the marriage.
