This is the case in a nut shell IMO. Need-based - totally different than compensatory. Some people's level of "need" is different than others. "Need" doesn't mean living on the gutter. SS is not indefinite.
If the man lost his job, and couldn't find a job, and the women still had a job. Would you say that the men would be in need and entitled to child support? 1967 is over in 2 months and it will be 1970. Do you think women will continue to encounter difficulties in obtaining employment in 1970 ?

Are you talking about the two people in this case who were partners in law firm together? Difficulty finding work? LOL they obviously aren't family law lawyers.

Your attempts to once again make derogatory comments regarding my age are noted. People like you rarely win in court you know.... You can't keep a discussion civil and you blow up and come apart. You'd be a walk-over in court.

Compensatory SS makes sense.

Needs based SS does not make sense.

Often, the two get muddled together. Some worthless slug stays home, nanny watches the kids, husband invents a product that makes a fortune, and during the divorce the slug somehow helped husband make his fortune by watching the nanny watch the kids. Boom, compensatory SS.

In this case though, there was no muddling. The judge actually listed all the ways wife did not qualify for compensatory SS. That's what makes this case so jarring, it is one of the more unjust cases of SS I have seen in a while.

Sidepoint: How did the formatting suddenly explode to all crap?

That is the very unfair aspect of SS. Nothing she did influenced my success, to which she benefited to a great degree. Nothing I did prevented her from a working life, especially when the kids went to school. But bang, $3.5 cost to me running over 20 years after the marriage.

Needs based SS = Privatized Welfare.

Why make the state pay when you can make Dads pay?

Look at child support too - $ for $ clawbacks vs. Welfare

In order of priority

The State
Children
Women
Men

Make the bottom pay first then go up.
