Lawyers reveal a growing number of ex-husbands are receiving alimony from wives

In a report published by Reuters on December 24, it was shown that more divorce lawyers are noting a shift in economic roles between men and women that has resulted in an increasing number of men receiving spousal support from more ‘well-off’ ex-wives.

A survey conducted by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers among its 1,600 members revealed that close to half of their colleagues have observed a rise in the number of husbands receiving alimony from their divorced wives. Experts say the shift is a result of an ongoing trend where women tend to be the key breadwinner in the family while men tend to slow-down their career to stay at home and look after children.
