In second marriages to the same spouse, the Court may treat the two marriages as one continuous marriage if the remarriage is for the purpose of eliminating the alimony awarded in the first marriage. See Cox v. Cox, 659 So.2d 1051 (Fla. 1995)
However, the Court should update the standard of living to the current period. Forster v. Forster, 11 So.3d 972 (Fla. 5th DCA 2009).
