Fork It Over, Honey

While much news has been made of sky-high divorce settlements for ex-wives—Heather Mills got more than $40 million from Paul McCartney, John Cleese is said to be paying his ex-wife $150,000 a month—the latest trend is what some divorce lawyers are calling “manimony.”

With more women in the workforce than ever before and the idea of being a stay-at-home-dad losing it’s stigma, it’s becoming more common to see men being awarded significant amounts of alimony, although many are still reluctant to seek it out. According to a source in this CNN article, 33% of women are the higher-earning spouse, while only 4% of women are the ones who end up paying alimony.
