She is horrible. She totally raped Alan in the divorce. She gets alimony and child support and she still makes him pay for things like school trips and sneakers for Jake. And she is such a bitch towards alan. I'd understand if he cheated on her during their marriage, but he didn't do anything wrong. She just decided to kick him out and divorce him simply because she wasn't happy anymore. And when they were married, she didn't even have sex with him.

To Update: The laws for marriage and children are very out dated and need revision. 60 years ago it was nearly impossible for women to work at a job that paid well enough to support themselves as well as their children. Divorce was very rare, but when it did happen, courts assumed that the mother was at home taking care of children, and therefore did not possess any work skills in order to support herself. Welfare didn't really appear for single mothers until the 70's... so alimony was awarded to women so that they could feed themselves and their children. I understand why this was put in place. It was to protect women from men who insisted they stay home and raise children and they take care of the bills, then decide that it 'wasn't for him' and left. Or for women who were in abusive relationships, etc. Now that women can work and child care is easy to obtain, the laws have become a man's burden for the most part.0
