11. That's the way it is in Texas

There is NO alimony in Texas. Just "spousal support," which is VERY limited and only available if the marriage lasted 10+ years and the recipient spouse is quite destitute or disabled.

Of course, we're community property, too, which makes a big difference. Quite frankly, I've never understood lavish alimony/spousal support regimes in community property states.
