  • Duration of the marriage 
  • Ability of the receiving spouse to earn an income
  • Education level and work history of the receiving spouse
  • Paying spouse’s ability to pay
  • Terms and enforceability of any prenuptial / premarital agreement
  • The ages and physical health of both spouses
  • Time the receiving spouse stayed out of the workforce to raise the parties’ children.
