Re: “Cheap hubby kills wife rather than pay alimony

I take issue with your headline about the Cheap Hubby eager to divorce but not to pay alimony. It does a disservice to all those going through a divorce, reinforces a stereotype from bygone days, and minimizes the true horror of divorce in our litigious nation. These days a contested divorce is a traumatic experience that often leaves people destitute. These days women often pay alimony. And suicides are as likely as homicides. The reason? In the US the legal bills for divorce total $50 billion annually. To reiterate, that is $50 with nine zeros after it! The person who murdered his wife in the midst of a divorce may or may not have been cheap and may or may not have wanted a divorce. But he was very likely exposed to the trauma inflicted by the cadre of lawyers and experts who feed off of peoples misery during a break-up, and laws that promote business by encouraging conflict. I am in no way defending this persons actions. But I think you should be more sensitive to the trauma of divorce when you write your sensational headlines. I urge people to see the movie to get a good view of what divorce in our nation really looks like. You will be shocked!
