Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Palo Alto County, Nancy L. Whittenburg, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Doyle and May, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  (9 pages)

            James Schmidt appeals from the decree of separate maintenance entered by the district court with regard to his marriage to Beverly Schmidt.  James contends the district court should have (1) dissolved the marriage, (2) characterized certain “financial benefits . . . from his mother” as separate inherited or gifted property; (3) awarded less alimony; and (4) not ordered him to pay attorney and guardian ad litem fees.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the decree of separate maintenance entered by the court.
