When divorce looms, many worry that their separation will not be easy and that it will take years before it is finalized. This does not usually happen, but it can. For instance, a 2008 divorce case began when a couple that had been together for almost two decades decided to call it quits. The husband offered to pay the wife $5,400 per month in spousal support until his retirement and said he would also give her a $50,000 lump sum payment.
