there are contradicting judgements on this aspect. you will have to couple facts along with precedents to make your point for denial of maintenance. situation also changes If you have a child out of the marriage and with whom the custody rests

The statue used the expression "unable to maintain herself" and it has nothing to do with her capability  or her potential earning capacity. As long as she is unable to maintain herself she should be feed like a child.
