Chin v Merriot, SJC-11715 (Jan. 30, 2015)
Ex-husband already had reached the age of retirement by 2011 divorce. He sought to terminate his alimony obligation under M.G.L. ch. 208, section 49(f). The alimony provision was merged into the judgment. In addition, he raised the cohabitation provision under M.G.L. ch. 208, section 49(d) as a reason for termination of alimony. Court held that both provisions were prospective only, and the ex-husband had not shown a material change of circumstance warranting modification or termination of his alimony obligation.
