All families are different. During the course of a marriage, it is possible that one, or both spouses were employed to support the family.
During a divorce, when one party earns substantially more than the other, it is possible for the lower-earning party to seek spousal maintenance. This would assist an individual in living at a standard he/she were accustomed to during the marriage, or even assist the lower-earning party to have additional income until they are able to solely support themselves.
If you need spousal maintenance, don’t be afraid to seek it
If you are going through a divorce, you should speak to an attorney about the possibility of maintenance. Maintenance could enable you to pursue educational opportunities to advance your career, or even assist you to be financially more stable post-divorce.
