Keep in mind that the longer you are married, the more you may have to pay spousal support. IIRC, the rule of thumb is 6 months for every year of marriage.

Thank you for the well written post about the realities of family court in Canada. I'll be saving it for my son in case he is ever foolish enough to get married.

First step is to determine if there should be any SS at all.

If there is to be SS, I believe the "rule of thumb" for spousal support is 1/2 year for every year of marriage, so 7.5 years.

I do agree with Iona that domestic violence is more serious than assaults outside the home, mainly because it should be a safe place and it's often very difficult to leave the home.

However, I'm...
