119 A.3d 891 (NJ Sup. Ct., 2015)
There is no bright line distinguishing between long term and short term marriages in deciding whether to award permanent alimony. Trial court reversed when it decided that permanent alimony is not warranted solely due to the 15 year length of the marriage. Trial court incorrectly stated that permanent alimony was only for marriages of over 25 years.
