High earning career women whose husbands play Mr. Mom are expecting to exit their marriages without being shaken down for alimony as men have been throughout legal history.

Nobody should get paid. If kids need support, both parents should be expected to work and to pay for that support. And consumption levels after a marriage should not be figured in terms of the during-marriage levels, they should be figured more in terms of basic needs or norms for the zipcode where the kids live.

If there are no kids, then property acquired during the marriage should be divided in some equitable way, with some token amount going to non-earning spouses but none of this "maintain the lifestyle they'd become accustomed to" and 50% type stuff you see, where marriage becomes a money making business.
