In 2011, Mrs. Zaleski (plaintiff) filed a complaint seeking a divorce from Mr. Zaleski (defendant). The parties were married for 16 years. At the time of the trial, the wife was 45 years old and the husband was 48 years old. Both parties were educated, experienced professionals who were employed full time for much of the marriage. The husband’s annual income was approximately $400,000. The wife’s annual income was approximately $170,000 until 2008, when she lost her job. The trial court found that the wife was employable and wished to be employed. The trial court awarded the wife rehabilitative alimony of $11,667 per month for a five-year period. The wife appealed, claiming that she was entitled to general term alimony as opposed to rehabilitative alimony.
