I almost forgot to mention the BEST part : I may have to pay for her lawyer since she can not afford to pay $400 hr. She is legally eligible to make such demand and pretty much there is nothing I can do about it.
Bottom line of this nonsense is that most of divorce laws were decided decades ago in order to protect woman since majority of woman didn't work, stayed home and took care of the kids. They were designed to make sure that wife can have a comfortable life with kids after divorce. A lot of thigs have changed over the years but the laws remained the same.
I heard that some states are already in the process of eliminating permanent (life time) alimony.
