This is a divorce action. The trial court designated Father primary residential parent of the parties? minor children and denied Mother?s request for alimony. We affirm designation of Father as primary residential parent, reverse the trial court?s denial of Mother?s request for alimony, and remand this matter to the trial court to fashion an award of transitional alimony consistent with this Opinion.
