I haven't heard anything about any suggested changes in Michigan's law regarding spousal support, but changes are happening in several other states. Here's a great segment from NPR's Here and Now from yesterday, October 2, 2013: http://hereandnow.wbur.org/2013/10/02/alimony-under-review . The speaker said that figures show only about 15% of divorces include alimony to a spouse. The reforms that are happening right now are focused on making the reasons for the spousal support clear and scaling back on awards of permanent spousal support.
