    She lists Melissa's former monthly income at almost $178,000 and their former standard of living at over $128,000 a month. Yeah, we could see how getting more than $100,000 less than what you're used to could be an issue.  

    In the documents, it states that Melissa "has extensive resources at her disposal and a tremendous earning capacity," while Tammy Lynn "has limited income and virtually no savings."

    In January 2011, Melissa Etheridge began dating Nurse Jackie creator Linda Wallem.
