In determining the allowance for divorce, “you have to take a composite criterion ‘taking into account’ the relevant financial conditions,” and “give particular importance to the contribution made by the former spouse” to the “common heritage and staff depending on length marriage, to the future profit potential and age. “

They established the United Sections of the Supreme Court dissolving a law conflict after the judgment Grilli had excluded the parameter of the “standard of living”.

The United Civil Sections of the Supreme Court in its judgment 18287 state that divorce due allowance must function together “relief, compensatory and equalizing.”

The ‘integrated test’ identified is based “on the constitutional principles of equal dignity and solidarity that permeate the marriage union even after the dissolution of the bond.”

Indeed, the ruling emphasizes that “their contribution to the conduct of family life is the result of joint decisions of both spouses, free and responsible, you can also have a profound effect on the balance sheet and income profile of each of them after the end of the marriage union ».

“The dissolution of the bond – the judges write – impact on the status but does not erase all the effects and consequences of the choices and of arrangements for family life.”

Therefore, “the appropriateness of the means must be evaluated not only in relation to their lack or insufficiency objective but also in relation to that which has helped to achieve.”
