The Moneyologist: After cheating on my wife and having twins out of wedlock, I face child support and alimony

Terrence Horan/MarketWatch

Dear Moneyologist,

After years of my wife having numerous affairs, I had one of my own which resulted in twins. Their mother and I came to an agreement on child support amicably, which is about 40% more than what would have been ordered by the local courts. This has allowed her and the children to move significantly closer to where I live, so I am able to be a part of their lives.

My wife and I have decided to divorce. I know our assets will be split and since she only recently rejoined the workforce, I will have to pay alimony.
