    In Sweden there is no such thing as spousal support, and if you have shared custody no one has to give a dime to anyone. Cheap? No! Sencible!



  2. 2

    Why is that cheap? Why does he have to pay her. In the infamous words of Chris Rock on alimony: 'When you leave a restaurant - they don't owe you a steak!' I am COMPLETELY against alimony - and I am a woman. Make your own money people! Jeesh!!!

    I always thought he was gay.

    First!!!

    spousal support comes from a time when women didnt work, if she didnt work to raise the family, or if he did work for the same reason, then she is entitled. BUT if either is capable to support themselves, then so be it. divorce laws need to be revised

    Am I the only one who doesn't think spousal support should be the *norm*? I understand splitting up assets and such, but why should a person who could support themselves be supported by his or her ex? Maybe very short-term, until the person can get on their feet (an at home mom re-entering the work force, for example). All child expenses should be split, but otherwise…I don't get it.



  7. 7

    He probably wants to cut her off due to her being with him for money in the first place… But dude, too bad, you married it, now you have to pay for it… LOL
    Live and learn bud… She's bulletproof with a kid…. Good luck bud!

    THEY WERE MARRIED FOR @ YEARS ! Spousal Support my A!!



  9. 9

    why should he have to pay spousal support? they were only married for a couple of years. he should pay child support, but she can work and support herself. money grubbin people make me angry…k-fed is another example.

    Re: JigSaw – new pic…nice…..



  11. 11

    they where only married 2 years why pay her!! I dont get where they sould get money when they didnt work for it!! Pay ur child support and thats it! Even then some pay to much! really how much $$$ do u need!!!



  12. 12

    Well if she is a stay at home mom and im sure she is than she should get some type of support. Im sure he wants his ex wife home with the kid so he'll have to give her some type of money to live on.

    spousal support is unfair to women. you cannot have it both ways, you want to be equal partners and since there is no differance between men and women(except the plumbing) when a couple goes its separate way the should be forced to look after themselves. the only support paid out should go to a joint account if kids are involved. and that joint account should be supported equally by both parents



  14. 14

    i wouldnt think that he would have all that much money to pay out anyway…..he isnt exactly a huge star anymore…



  15. 15

    Re: JigSaw – It's b/c of that comment that I'm now in love with you.. LOL seriously, that's so true.. I wish there would've been a better law like that when my parents split up 2-3 years ago.. The rules aren't fair for men..

    Re: UrMajestyMsG – G'morning love.. You've been gone for like ever!

    I am loving this. As a hard-working woman who supports herself I keep seeing these gold-digging biatches "snag" a superficial guy who can't stop bragging about his "trophy". Well that trophy will cost ya when you get divorced. And you will, because your friends/associates may be impressed by her fake boobs at a dinner party but they aren't home with you when she bores the crap out of you.
    *
    Everyone getting what they deserve makes me happy :)
    *
    The superficial gold-diggers also get what they deserve b/c quite frankly, a life where you are a lazy stay at home bore is so tragic. I'd rather stab myself than be confined to the home talking baby-talk all day and inhaling toluene from nail polish bottles.

    Re: JigSaw – Well.. Maybe for a while, but now I have an excuse.. *blush*

    Re: perezhasanalleakage – Marriages don't always work like that. In this case, since the child is only one, it sounds like Christine was either pregnant or raising an infant for the duration of the marriage. Most women don't work during this time because care of the child takes precedent.
    .
    .
    I'm sure David wants his child to be cared for, and if that's the case, he needs to stop being a cheap-ass and throw his ex money to pay the bills and get on her feet. It's extremely difficult for moms to re-enter the work force, especially in this economy.



  21. 21

    But she's not exactly trophy material. She's straight as a board with that ugly bulbous nose and those squinty eyes and not to mention that chin. Ugh. She's probs much younger than him so he married her thinking she would "love him long time". LOL.



  22. 22

    I wouldn't pay spousal support either. Homegirl can earn her own way. I would pay child support though, but I'd set it up in a way that not a cent of the money was spent on the ex-wife. The entire amount would have to be spent on the child.



  23. 23

    he shouldn't have to give her spousal support they were married for TWO years, most of which was spent with her pregnant or with a new baby. i could understand if it were at least 10 or more but TWO. you are only saying he's cheap because she is a woman, but you said the complete opposite about kate walsh's moocher and this women is the same as walsh's husband, out for the money.



  24. 24

    GOOD WORK DAVID! MAKE THAT BITCH WORK IF SHE WANTS MONEY, YOU EARNED YOUR KEEP, NOW SHE MUST EARN HERS. AND SHUT THE FUCK UP PEREZ YOU FAT PINK PEICE OF SHIT, CHEAP MY ASS, ITS ABOUT PRINCIPALS AND LETTING WOMEN KNOW THAT ONCE TIES GET SEVERED, THAT THEY ARE NO LONGER ENTITLED TO EACHOTHERS WAGES.WE WANT PRENUP…



  25. 25

    Seems like she's the cheap one. Married two years, one kid right away, and then getting the hell out of a marriage from a rich celebrity asap? Smells like a gold digger to me, and I'm a woman saying that…



  26. 26

    Good luck, David. She WILL win spousal support - - even though she shouldn't.
    Men with money should be more careful about getting married .. gold-digging has become a career



  27. 27

    She's hot.



  28. 28

    I don't see anything wrong with denying spousal support. I'm sure the woman can make a living on her own. Spousal support IMO = a lazy bitch.



  29. 29

    If they file in CA, she is only entitled to spousal support for half the length of the marriage if married under 10 years. He is within his right to say no to spousal support.

    Re: lau115ren – Oh god, spare me! That is such a slap in the face to the womens liberation movement, it's not even funny. I'm a single mother, student and worker. I don't HAVE to work because I get VA benefits but I do because nobody owes ME anything. Her father owes my daughter his financial support and love, but not ME. To think David owes HER something is just ridiculous. And I understand that it's hard for mothers to get into the workforce, but she's in a different tier of woman - being that her ex husband is a famous comedian/actor not some average joe. The only thing he owes is supporting their daughter, which is obviously more important to him because he wants shared custody.



  31. 31

    Why is he cheap? Why isn't SHE a lazy, good for nothing freeloader, who doesn't want to have to work for a living. Child support, YES….Spousal support….Not in a million years. Tell her to get her ass out there and work for a living like the majority of the single mothers who have self respect and don't need a man to support them.



  32. 32

    Get a fucking job.



  33. 33

    TWO YEARS and she wants spousal support??? you give women a bad name, lady



  34. 34

    UGLY & UGLIER!!!



  35. 35

    I don't agree with spousal support but if you don't want to pay it then don't marry someone who doesn't have a job or sign an pre-nuptual agreement.



  36. 36

    As a woman i do not believe in spousal support, fair enough he pays for his daughter, but seriously she deserves nothing. Don't believe in taking something you do not work hard for. Look after yourself woman, you do not need him to raise you too!



  37. 37

    Child support, absolutely, Wife support? hells no.



  38. 38

    She is going to get alot of child support! And she deserves it! But spousal support for someone who has only been married two years is a bit much!



  39. 39

    Split up current money and child support only. I agree as well should be that way for everyone anywhere in world!

    When you marry someone, you enter into a contract. If you marry someone with a higher standard of living, that's part of what they're offering you as a marriage partner.
    .
    If they then divorce you, they should absolutely compensate you for violating the contract, because you gave up other offers and made decisions based on the understanding that you had formed a lifelong partnership.
