Benefits dating multiple men
A friend told me I should stick it out a while longer since there are benefits to being married ten years or longer. In some states, such as California, in a marriage of ten years or longer the court retains he right to order that alimony be paid to the lesser-earning spouse for as long as she needs it, if the other spouse has the ability to pay.
If you do not know the rules in your state, you could unintentionally lose your right to alimony.
If you were married for ten years of longer, you will be eligible to collect derivative Social Security benefits based on your ex-spouse’s earnings record when you reach retirement age (if you aren’t married to someone else at the time).
For instance, you and your spouse might negotiate a fixed amount of alimony for a set period.
If your settlement agreement designates that the alimony is non-modifiable, the court will not retain the right to extend alimony beyond the time specified, even if your marriage was longer than ten years.

Men were more attracted to women who were more physically attractive, but female mindfulness did not influence male initial attraction.
Yet when there’s news about how one in three black men are unfairly abused in prison it’s all weeping and bleeding hearts. What’s more, the mere thought of having to get a guy to marry you before he plants his seed in your womb might often throw them into a blind rage. These days, being an intact, functioning family in the hood will get your kids beat up at school every day.
