That's a rhetorical question, right? But completely ignoring what DD correctly stated:
No.. But you know that.. you just don't want to directly answer the question...

The question should be "What is the acceptable amount of money a millionaire should pay his ex
and his child, after he cheats on her and abuses her? Leave the children out of it because there is nothing to suggest that they witnessed any of the abuse or infidelity.
If he abused her, sue him in civil [not family] court. If he was unfaithful, sue him in civil [not family] court.
So your issue is not whether she should be compensated for the breaking of the marriage contract through abuse and infidelity.. but that the wrong court decided? Because I like the American system that has separated juvenile, family and other courts recognizing the unique situation of each.. The family court already separates her marital issue from his responsibility to the children.. hence alimony v. child support... that she received..
If Nas filed and won a counterclaim against Kelis for any adultery on her part she would not get a dime in alimony... so I think the court's are fair.. I think men really hate it when they are held accountable.. and there is no bickering when women who are the breadwinners of the family are required to pay alimony to their ex spouses.. Halle Berry included.. just outrage when women who are often with child are awarded it. interesting...
