An appeals court ruling involving a La Crosse couple could be watched closely by lawyers who work on pre-nuptial agreements...
The Fourth District Court of Appeals is sending a divorce case back to Judge Todd Bjerke, to settle disputes over divided property and 'spousal maintenance.' A local doctor and his wife broke up, and they disagree on whether the pre-marriage agreement they signed two days before the wedding can be enforced. One issue to be decided is whether she is able to support herself without much money from him. The pre-nuptial contract apparently assumed that both husband and wife would work steadily throughout the marriage, and did not take into account that the wife would stop working for some time to raise their kids.
As far as the weather service is concerned, winter ends today in the Midwest.
The National Weather Service bases its winter weather records on the three months from December through February. And in those months, La Crosse has had about 40 inches of snow...almost twice what we received last winter. Because our snow cover should keep temperatures low, forecaster Jeff Boyne does not expect a repeat of last year's record warmth in March. January was the driest month this winter in La Crosse, with only six-and-a-half inches of snow, and most of that fell during a storm at the very end of the month.
