Yes, why not? If the woman was the main earner and the man had given up his career or his chance to establish a career to support her, then I think the same rules should apply as when the situation is the other way round. All the caveats I can think of (length of marriage, his future earning potential, the reason for the divorce etc etc) are already in place for when it is an ex-wife claiming support from a man. Justice is supposed to be blind and I think that applies here.
I don't like the idea myself.
Unless .
1. She was making a lot of money.
2.He was very unwell and unable to work.

I think it is not the norm, and under certain conditions it would happen.
Lets face it, if he is healthy he should be working.
If not healthy, then he may for a short time need some help.
The man is usually the provider for the family but these days with dads staying home and the woman being the career person, its a bit different. I think he could be supported for a while but I am really not sold on the idea.

No, unless of course he got full custody of the children.

NO , not at all

I think the division of assets is based an a fair formula, taking into consideration stay at home parenting, length of relationship, etc. But the only on going obligation is to children...and that is based on a few factors. A husband does not (usually) upkeep an ex-spouse (in Australia), so i wouldn't think a wife would. But if the two parties wanted such an arrangement, then that is their business.
Yes if the situation is right for this -I had to pay a huge amount to my last partner of 18 years because he got rid of a lot of money and so the courts deemed I had more than him so had to give him half my super.

If it is honest though, there is no reason why the woman should not pay or vice versa.
