The answer, of course, is that it depends. In Oklahoma, Alimony (also know as spousal support) is getting less common by our observation, but it is still available to an eligible party.
To be eligible to receive Alimony from another person the proposed recipient has to:
(1) be married to the proposed payor of the alimony
(2) be getting divorced or legally separated from the payor
(3) be able to demonstrate a genuine need for spousal support
(4) show that the proposed payor has the means to pay spousal support.
