Do only wives get maintenance, or are husbands eligible as well?

No, it can be husbands, it is not gender biased. It could be a husband from another husband, it could be a wife from another wife, it can be a wife to a husband, a husband to a wife. It is based upon the income and the assets of the parties who are seeking maintenance from the other.
