Will the new Colorado family laws impact productivity, I am surprised that the draconian family laws in the USA are not driving down GDP in a measurable way, I mean seriously who wants to work for almost free after the feds, state and ex wife (child support and alimony) get their take.

I think an unintended consequence is going to be fewer businesses moving to Colorado, and more leaving. Think about it. If you are a CEO making a million a year, and your marriage isn't perfect (and whose is?), are you going to move your business to CO, knowing that if your wife doesn't like it here you'll automatically pay her 40% of your gross income in alimony? Or will you go to Texas, where alimony is rarely awarded?

I know what I would do.

If you're avoiding a state because of alimony laws, you shouldn't have said "Til death do us part".
