We have no debt. He makes 60K, I make 25K. Is it still possible to get alimony. I will never be able to live the life style he does on 25K. I am covering him on my health insurance. It is possible to make him cover me the rest of my life. We are both in upper 50's & I cannot begin to think about retirement because he refuses to discuss his retirement, pension etc with me. I have only small SS benefit saved up. Our assets amount to 200K house & 200K in investments excluding retirement accts. My 401K amounts to only 125K. Also am I allowed to keep inheritance given to me by my parents & other money given to me by them over the last 33 years without splitting it with him. I do have proof. His company will also pay him all of his sick leave in cash he has acquired over 30years when he retires which could amount to 50K. Am I intitled to half? He also has paid up insurance after he retires. Am I not also intitled to half? All I want is half of our assets which alot of it is tied up to his pension & benefits in his company.
