Second wives activist fights lifelong alimony


Sun Sentinel article: Second wives activist fights lifelong alimony
by Donna Gehrke-White


Second Wive’s Club leader,  “Debbie Leff Israel, believes in sharing — but not to the point of turning over part of her paycheck to her finance’s ex-wife.”

“That’s why the Weston woman says she has held off marrying her beloved; she just doesn’t want to financially support his ex-wife.”

“She has become a leader in Florida Alimony Reform, which largely had been made up of men who are paying support to ex-wives for the rest of their lives unless the women remarry. The group unsuccessfully tried to get a bill to end permanent alimony passed during the last legislative session and is now planning to introduce a new one when the Legislature meets next year.”
