The Court may consider the age and physical and emotional condition not only of each party, but of both parties together, in determining whether permanent alimony is appropriate.
For example, in Leone v. Leone, 577 So.2d 587 (Fla. 3d DCA 1991), the husband was a medical doctor who was no longer able to practice as an orthopedic surgeon because of heart surgery. His 36-year-old wife was in good health, had worked as a waitress before the marriage, and had attended college for approximately one year. Based on these facts, the Court upheld the trial court’s denial of permanent periodic alimony in favor of rehabilitative alimony.
