This amendment modifies Article I of the Florida Constitution by providing that no person whose marriage has been legally dissolved in the state is subject to any type of alimony obligation as part of dissolution of marriage. The state would no longer recognize "alimony" which was historically based on the obligation of the husband to support his wife. This amendment recognizes the state constitutional rights of both husband and wife to privacy and equal protection.
