I think that this case is scheduled to be argued in front of the Supreme Court tomorrow.

The case is certainly an interesting one. You can read the case here:
http://www.courts.gov.bc.ca/jdb-txt/...04bcca0422.htm

I'm don't think that the article you provided is entirely accurate. Basically, the court found that the wife was unable to work because she was emotionally devastated due to the husband's adultery. The media is playing on the fact that the court seems to be considering marital fault (adultery) when spousal support is not supposed to be based on fault. But the wife could have been unable to work due to any other disability. It would be a strange result if the cause of a person's disability affected the amount of spousal support the person received.
