If future gift income of the receiving spouse is shown to be speculative, it should not be considered in an alimony calculation. Gardner v. Gardner, 692 So.2d 245 (Fla. 1st DCA 1997). See Vorcheimer v Vorcheimer, 780 So.2d 1018 (Fla. 4th DCA 2001).
However, gifts from the husband’s family received regularly throughout the marriage and relied on for support, were properly considered income in Ordini v. Ordini, 701 So.2d 663 (Fla. 4th DCA 1997).
