Description Husband's agreement to hold wife harmless and indemnify her in connection with a jointly incurred obligation was not rendered nondischargeable by 11 U.S.C. Sec. 523(a)(5), because it was not in the nature of "alimony to, maintenance for, or support" for her as husband's spouse, given that there was no substantial disparity between the income of the husband and wife, there was nothing in the agreement suggesting that the obligation was in the nature of support, and the parties had no minor children. Obligation to indemnify wife may have been rendered nondischargeable by 11 U.S.C. Sec. 523(a)(15)--which provided at the time that discharge of an individual debtor under Sec. 727 of the Bankruptcy Code does not discharge that debtor from a debt of the kind described in Sec. 523(a)(15).
