Both parties to a suit for dissolution of marriage appeal the trial court's amended decree of June 17, 1974 as it relates to various aspects of a maintenance award, division of marital property, child custody and allocation of attorney fees. The wife objects to the trial court's decree on three gounds: 1) that the husband was given an excessive amount of temporary custody; 2) that the amount and duration of the maintenance awarded was unreasonable, and 3) that the husband was awarded an excessive amount of marital property. The husband, in turn, argues that the trial court erred by including as marital property his interest in his company's profit-sharing plan, his stock interest in the company, and, finally, in failing to rule that a loan made by his mother was a lien against the marital home for which the wife should be responsible. He also objects to the award to the wife of $8,000 in attorney fees. We decide on appeal whether the trial court abused its discretion in ordering any of these provisions. Hinson v. Hinson, 518 S.W.2d 330 (Mo. App. 1975); Page v. Page, 516 S.W.2d 537 (Mo. App. 1974). We also consider the adequacy of the award. Phillips v. Phillips, 219 S.W.2d 249 (Mo. App. 1949); Jenkins V. Jenkins, 396 S.W.2d 268 (Mo. App. 1965).
