I propose to make three comments on Professor Singer's article. First, I will present my views on the limitations of law and economics when applied to family law. Second, I will discuss why specialization between husbands and wives is not necessarily efficient, and perhaps not even the best use of law and economics in the study of the family. Finally, and perhaps most controversially, I will question whether there are gender differences that should impact alimony law.
