A court may order one party to take parenting education and to undergo counseling, substance abuse treatment and random drug tests. The parties were married in 2006 and have two minor children. The wife alleged that the husband, who has a degree in telecommunications and fiber optics, was injured at work, underwent back surgery, and became addicted to pain medicine. (The husband claimed that he is sober.) On May 15, 2011, the husband allegedly informed the wife that she would like it if he raped her and proceeded to engage in unwanted sexual intercourse. The husband was arrested on charges of sexual assault. A court issued a "no contact" restraining order. The husband was arrested for violating the restraining order, because he allegedly contacted the wife to inform the wife that he loved her, he was addicted to pain medicine and he would do everything he could to reconcile. The court found the husband at greater fault for the breakdown of the marital relationship. The husband, 28, earned $12.15 gross per hour, until he was discharged in 2011. Currently, he receives unemployment compensation of $230 gross per week. The court found that he has an earning capacity of $486 gross per week. The wife, 26, earns $775 gross per week as an administrative assistant, receives $40 per week from Women, Infants and Children, and is taking classes toward a nursing degree. The court awarded the wife sole custody and the father supervised visitation. The court ordered the husband to pay child support of $123 per week, plus $25 per week on the child support arrearage. The court ordered the husband to take parenting education and to undergo counseling, substance abuse treatment and random drug tests. The court ordered the husband to pay alimony of $1 per week until the wife's death, marriage, cohabitation or June 2019. The court awarded the wife the marital residence, which has a fair market value of approximately $140,000 and a mortgage, in the wife's name only, of about $140,000. The court awarded the wife the 2005 Honda CRV and the husband the 2003 Hundai Tiberon.
