Manimony: Dollar Sign Of The Times

How can you measure the success women have had in the workforce? Sure, there are lady CEOs, lady doctors, and even lady presidential candidates. But, you know, manimony — alimony for ex-husbands dependent on their wife’s wage, is truly a sign that women are bringing home the bacon! While one-third of wives make more than their husbands, only about 4 percent of men get manimony after a divorce. Apparently, despite their equal entitlement granted by The Uniform Marriage and Divorce Act of 1970, men still feel socially emasculated for asking an ex for money. We’ve come so far, but now the men are keeping themselves down. [CNN]
