Ex-Husband and Ex-Wife are divorced.
Ex-Husband was ordered to pay Ex-Wife alimony in the divorce.
Ex-Husband is in arrears to the tune of $70,000.
Not because of illness or disability or unemployment.
Ex-Husband actually owns several successful businesses and holds roughly one hundred patents.
But Ex-Husband contends that Ex-Wife breached their settlement agreement, in which he agreed to pay Ex-Wife alimony, by abandoning their sons thirty years ago.
And so Ex-Husband refuses to pay the alimony arrearages, out of principle.
Ex-Husband is eighty years old and their divorce took place thirty-eight years ago.
None of the above caused a Georgia judge to hesitate before ordering Ex-Husband to jail.
