Attorney Ellen Elkins Grimes represented an individual who had been divorced a number of years. As a condition of the divorce Ellen’s client, a retired doctor, had to pay for the ex-wife’s residence, even though the children were grown and married, unless another male resided in the residence for a continual period of 14 days.

The ex-wife’s boyfriend, who had his own house, had been living with the ex-wife for a number of years.
