Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Buchanan County, Monica L. Zrinyi Wittig, Judge.  AFFIRMED AS MODIFIED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and May and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (16 pages)

            The district court dissolved the twenty-seven year marriage of Jacquelyn and Joel Schultz.  On appeal, Joel appeals certain factual findings made by the district court and argues for an entitlement to spousal support.  Jacquelyn found the decree acceptable and asks that we affirm.  OPINION HOLDS: We modify the decree to award Joel spousal support of $2500 per month until he reaches age seventy.  After that date, the spousal support shall be reduced to $1500 per month until either party dies, in which case the support shall terminate.  We affirm the decree as modified.
