It's only fair...
Palimony is different... that refers to a domestic partnership that lasts for an extended period of time without legally being married. Since they both depended on each others income and shared the same living space they are considered indebted to each other. Even without being married.
What "I think" you are talking about is just alimony. Unless they never got married and he knocked her up and takes care of the kids. The person's sex doesn't effect the word.
