i) The ex-wife will get alimony only if she is not earning herself or has no means of earning. In case, she has a job, or business, or another mode of earning from savings or property, she may not get any alimony.
The Court can refuse to give any alimony order in favour of the wife if she is well qualified and is not willing to work to earn herself. In such a situation, the court passes an order for alimony for a temporary period. By the end of that period, she has to find a job for herself.
(ii) If the ex-wife is in a relationship with someone else, she is not legally liable to claim any alimony,even if she is not planning to marry.
