Former Gov. James McGreevey, now a seminary student for Episcopal priesthood, will not have to pay alimony

The headline above was pieced together from text in the story.

NEW YORK (CNN) — A New Jersey judge finalized terms of the highly public divorce between former Gov. James McGreevey, who resigned four years ago after acknowledging he is gay, and his estranged wife Dina Matos McGreevey — but ruled McGreevey, now a seminary student for Episcopal priesthood, will not have to pay alimony, only child support.

McGreevey must pay child support of $250 a week or $1,075 monthly, Family Court Judge Karen Cassidy ruled Friday in granting the couple a divorce. The couple agreed to share custody of their 6-year-old daughter Jacqueline, but battled over alimony payments during their May divorce trial.

“The McGreeveys clearly had agendas … their anger seemed to override any ability to testify credibly or be reasonable,” Cassidy wrote in her opinion.

  1. Ann says:

    McGreevy is in seminary at General but not in any diocesan process for ordination according to NY, NJ or Newark.

  2. Jane R says:

    Yes, and the various dioceses made this point way back when the media got it wrong… obviously they didn’t pay attention.

  3. Kim says:

    I’m confused, aren’t you the least bit distrubed that this man who publically humilated his wife on national TV and now is getting off scott free, is encouraged to be studying in the seminary of your faith? And if the sect is incorrect, we, the general public, have not seen a public outcry denouncing his affiliation.
