This line was used to justify a proportional settlement of 20 years of housekeeping AFTER the marriage ends. But during those 20 years she did enjoy the financial support of the husband, food shelter spending money etc.. Why would she be entiteld to additional compensation after she stopped providing the services to him ? If she stops providing why does he have to keep providing ? Is there a book "feminist logic explained to normal people" ?
Update: She did enjoy housing shelter food and spending money that was propotional to his salary.
Update 2: MdDonalds is just fine, why does everyone think that a white woman not living a life of luxury is inhuman ? There are parts of the world where men work for 50 cent a day.
Update 3: Flagator exactly, but the marriage is over. Why should she be compensated for what she didnt get in the marriage after having profited from the marriage ? Its like because she ate her cake she should get another one because now she has no cake.

Update 5: Elf cohabitation, just as good as marriage, but without divorce hassle.
