It depends from case to case. Ultimately alimony or maintenance is granted on the application of either of the party. If the husband is financially weak or has no support whatsoever he can ask for alimony too just like the wife.

During marriage is expected that each spouse will support the other.
In Divorse/Dissolution, there is a thing called alimony. It is figured in a similar manner to Child Support, only it is for the spouse. Generally the individual who makes less is support by the one who makes more after divorce. Although, that may not necessarily be true because alimony can be paid to the individual who possesses the children (if there are any involved).
Not all states call it alimony, there are some that call is spousal maintenance instead. You can make a motion for it when you file for divorce/dissolution.
It might also interest you to know that unlike Child Support - alimony or spousal maintenance is tax deductible.

If the husband wants to provide financial support to his wife, he can certainly do it. It is not mandatory, unless it is part of the legal separation or divorce agreement.
