When your marriage ends, you may decide that you want to maintain your lifestyle that you were accustomed during your marriage. Some people who have been out of the workforce for 10,15 or 20 plus years may have a hard time finding the job or career to make ends meet. For those situations, spousal support (formerly called alimony) may be awarded to help both parties maintain their standards of living.
