Progress With a Caveat in Flordia

The Florida Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously approved a bill that would end permanent alimony. The bill is very similar to one that was vetoed by Governor Rick Scott in 2013 with the most notable exception being that it does not apply retroactively. 

I am happy progress is being made but it is heart wrenching to think that those who have already suffered so much will most likely be required to suffer onto death. 

Every ray of hope seems to bring dark shadow. But, still, progress is progress. This reminds me of a quote by the Roman statesman and general Quintus Sertorius:
Many things which cannot be overcome when they stand together yield themselves up when taken little by little
It will be a long battle to achieve divorce reform in the United States. Justice is never easy as there are always entrenched powers that will stop at little to maintain the current state.
