A: The fact that she is gay does not have anything to do with the question of alimony. There are many factors that go into whether or not alimony will be paid, including your respective incomes, infidelity, work history, etc. Consult with an attorney about your specific case.

A: A judge will decide whether or not she will be able to get alimony from you, and that is after reviewing all the facts of the case. Her being gay will not have anything to do with whether or not she gets alimony.
