You could possibly argue for a reduction/termination of Spousal, given that spousal support is intended to allow the person receiving it a bit of "float" to get themselves back on their feet, and from what you describe, she is likely over 45% of your NDI at present,not even including spousal support.

Depending on how amicable you are, you could always make an offer to her between the two of you that is reasonable...ie. request termination of support after another 12-24 months, but agree to shoulder more of the travel costs associated to your access after that.

It makes you look reasonable, since you are not arbitrarily cutting support off without notice, you are willing to continue it for an additional duration, one that would have been more in line with accepted norms.
