For the record I am Mrs Shezza (divorced).
I also gave my ex a larger % of the assets because I earned more and I took on financial responsibility for my kids.
My note was relating to a new relationship I am in.
I would never request equality of income and was having difficulty believing this was a possibility. The odd man may get this but it will be predominately women who request it - and set back female equality by a hundred years.
I would only ever request maintenance to help care for the kids (although I did not as I earned more). I would never declare that a man was responsible for my financial wellbeing all my life - that is just pathetic.
Thanks for your comments.
