Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Equitable distribution is predicated on the philosophy that marriage represents an economic partnership requiring that upon dissolution each partner should receive a fair portion of the property accumulated during the marriage. Therefore, circumstances that affect the partnership’s economic condition are factors that must be considered for purposes of the equitable distribution scheme. When spouses are divorced, the law imposes on the supporting spouse the duty, within the limits of his or her financial ability, to maintain his or her former spouse according to the station in life to which he or she was accustomed during the marriage. In fixing the amount of the spousal support award, a review of all of the factors contained in Va. Code Ann. § 20-107.1 is mandatory, and the amount awarded must be fair and just under all of the circumstances. When the record discloses that the trial court considered all of the statutory factors, the court’s ruling will not be disturbed on appeal unless there has been a clear abuse of discretion.
