    The quote: "Life Happens when you make other plans" seems apt when thinking about retiring someday. One can't forsee that your wife of 25 years will wake up one day and decide to divorce you and walk away with Half your company's pension, Half your 401k and half the equity in your house. On top of that, in California, you are legally required to provide generous Spousal Support for a long-term marriage for the remainder of your or her's life until either of you die or she re-marries. Why should she give up my alimony check so her Lover can marry her? She is having her cake and eating it too.
