GLADNEY v. BEARDEN; and vice versa.
NICHOLS, Chief Justice.
Contempt. Cobb Superior Court. Before Judge Williford, Senior Judge.
1. The former wife remarried after entry of the final judgment and decree of divorce but before denial of the husband's motion for new trial. In reliance upon Coleman v. Coleman, 240 Ga. 417 (240 SE2d 870) (1978) and Kristensen v. Kristensen, 240 Ga. 670 (242 SE2d 132) (1978), the husband contends in his sole enumeration of error briefed in this court that her remarriage at that time bars her right to recover periodic payments of the lump sum award of alimony as provided for in the final judgment and decree. The Coleman and Kristensen cases, supra, pertain alone to remarriage before entry of final judgment and decree and are inapplicable where, as in the present case, the final judgment and decree had been entered prior to remarriage. Although enforcement of the final judgment and decree was suspended during the pendency of the motion for new trial, the order of the trial court denying the motion had the effect of affirming the final judgment and decree as of the date it was entered. Nicol v. Nicol, 240 Ga. 673 (242 SE2d 129) (1978).
2. The trial court did not abuse its discretion regarding payment of the alimony and sale of the parties' marital residence.
3. The motion for imposition of sanctions filed by the former wife is denied.
Elizabeth M. Leonard, for appellee.
Richard L. Powell, for appellant.
