    Plenty of similar examples in the UK. The issue starts with this statement :-

    "he thought of divorce court as a place where grievances were smoothed over and order restored"

    In fact calling in divorce lawyers is like calling the fire brigade. To find they pour napalm on the fire...

    The lawyer won!
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    The lawyers always win and are the only winners, took my parents a decade to slug it out, empty the coffers and ruin each other.
    Then they both married rich people.

    Florida legislators are considering a similar bill (SB 718) that would do away with permanent alimony. If it passes, the amount and duration of an alimony award could be determined by the length of the marriage and the paying spouse's income. For example, a court might award a wife in a 26-year marriage a maximum of 13 years of alimony with the amount not to exceed 33 percent of the husband's gross income. The Family Law Section of the Florida Bar opposes the measure because it might have serious financial consequences for nonworking spouses in long-term relationships and because it could also flood the courts with alimony payers attempting to get out of obligations.
    did quite like this, seemed sensible.
