As you can see, Mass Alimony Reform's website has undergone a transformation. It's now an amazing repository of information about alimony laws in Massachusetts, information about women and work, and news about how these laws can be changed to reflect real life in 2008, instead of the distorted, archaic world view that shapes the state's alimony laws.
As more people hear about Mass Alimony's work and goals, membership grows beyond our imaginings. Men and women from around the state and around country are working together to change the laws - and to give one another support and practical information on how to navigate the state's 18th century divorce courts.
Please continue to spread the word about our work, send a link to our website to anyone you know who is getting married or divorced in Massachusetts, and please donate whatever you can to MAR, even if it's $10. See the link under DONATIONS. Use PayPal or send a check.
Come early January, when the new bill will be introduced, we will need people to come to the State House from all over the state and show their support for new legislation that will bring Massachusetts laws into the 21st century - and into conformity with the rest of the country.
It's about time, isn't it?
