This could me be, except it’s my wife who was making the same amount. My pay is just less than half of her pay. She made me a very similar offer. I say pay the lawyer. It will pay off big for you in the long run. No guarantees but depending on your wage and where you live, you should be in line for about $3000 monthly and from anywhere to one year of support for every two years married to one for one. That would change if you remarry, however.
