I just saw an article on CNN about a man in Seminole County, Florida who is required to pay lifetime alimony to his former spouse, a woman who now has undergone a sex change operation and is living as a man. I’m scratching my head about this and am not sure that I have an opinion. The legal expert retained by the local television news station was of the opinion that there was no way that the order for lifetime alimony should be modified or terminated, as the payment of alimony was based upon the parties’ relationship prior to divorce, and nothing that occurred after divorce should matter. Interesting, to say the least.
The video news story can be found on the CNN Law Page today.
