The threshold question presented for review is whether judgment on the pleadings is appropriate in this action. G.S. 1A-1, Rule 12(c) provides that a motion for judgment on the pleadings should not be granted unless the movant clearly establishes that no material issue of fact remains to be resolved and that the mov-ant is entitled to judgment as a matter of law. Trust Co. v. Elzey, 26 N.C. App. 29, 214 S.E. 2d 800, cert. denied, 288 N.C. 252, 217 S.E. 2d 662 (1975). The trial judge is to consider only the pleadings and any attached exhibits, which become part of the pleadings. Wilson v. Development Co., 276 N.C. 198, 206, 171 S.E. 2d 873, 879 (1970); Van Every v. Van Every, 265 N.C. 506, 512, 144 S.E. 2d 603, 607 (1965); 10 Strong’s N.C. Index 3d, Pleadings, § 38.4, p. 304-305. No evidence is to be heard, and the trial judge is not to consider statements of fact in the briefs of the parties or the testimony of allegations by the parties in different proceedings. Wilson v. Development Co., supra, at 206, 171 S.E. 2d at 878; Acceptance Corp. v. Spencer, 268 N.C. 1, 13, 149 S.E. 2d 570, 579 (1966); 10 Strong’s N.C. Index 3d, Pleadings, § 38.4, p. 305.
The record in this case, however, contains affidavits and indicates that the trial judge, in addition to considering the pleadings and attached exhibits, also heard counsel for both parties and considered briefs submitted by both parties. Therefore, the motion must be considered as though it was made under Rule 56. See G.S. 1A-1, Rule 12(c) (motion for judgment on the pleadings will be treated as motion for summary judgment when matters outside the pleadings are presented to and not excluded by the court).
*79G.S. 1A-1, Rule 56(c) provides that summary judgment shall be granted “if the pleadings, depositions, answers to interrogatories, and admissions on file, together with the affidavits, if any, show that there is no genuine issue as to any material fact and that any party is entitled to a judgment as a matter of law.” Summary judgment, like judgment on the pleadings, is appropriately granted only where no disputed issues of fact have been presented and the undisputed facts show that any party is entitled to judgment as a matter of law. Bland v. Bland, 21 N.C. App. 192, 203 S.E. 2d 639 (1974) (summary judgment); High v. Parks, 42 N.C. App. 707, 257 S.E. 2d 661, disc. rev. denied, 298 N.C. 806, 262 S.E. 2d 1 (1979) (judgment on the pleadings).
In this case, the rights and obligations of the parties are established by the consent judgment and the only dispute between the parties relates to the proper interpretation of its provisions. Such questions are appropriately addressed on motion for summary judgment. See Bland v. Bland, supra.
In essence, a consent judgment is a contract between parties entered upon the record with the approval and sanction of the court. Id. at 195, 203 S.E. 2d at 641. A consent judgment must be construed in the same manner as a contract to ascertain the intent of the parties; it must be interpreted in light of the controversy and the purposes intended to be accomplished by it. Id. Where the language of the contract is plain and unambiguous, the construction of the agreement is a matter of law; the court may not ignore or delete any of its provisions, nor insert words into it, but must construe the contract as written, in light of undisputed evidence as to custom, usage and meaning of its terms. Martin v. Martin, 26 N.C. App. 506, 508, 216 S.E. 2d 456, 457-458 (1975); 3 Strong’s N.C. Index 3d, Contracts, § 12.1, p. 392.
This Court cannot insert the words “child support” into the plain and unambiguous language of the consent judgment. Defendant contends that the consent judgment awarded plaintiff the marital home as child support. To support his argument, defendant relies upon affidavits by himself and lawyers for both parties during the proceeding which terminated with the consent judgment. The affidavits attest to the affiants’ beliefs that the award of the home was intended to be child support. However, these affidavits may not properly be considered in support of defendant’s *80argument because the language of the consent judgment is plain and unambiguous.
In Corbin v. Langdon, 23 N.C. App. 21, 208 S.E. 2d 251 (1974), the plaintiff presented affidavits to show the practical interpretation given to an earlier contract between the parties involving the sale of a dentistry practice. The court concluded that any parol understandings regarding the interest of the parties merged into the writings. Id. at 26, 208 S.E. 2d at 254. Finding that the parties had ample opportunity to clearly express other interests but had failed to do so, the court refused to consider the affidavits as evidence manifesting an intent other than that expressed in their written agreement. Id. We find this principle of contract construction equally applicable in the case sub judice. We have examined the language of the parties’ consent judgment itself to ascertain the intent of the parties and find no mention of child support in regard to the marital home. Significantly, another award is specifically entitled “child support.” Under these circumstances, this Court cannot, under the guise of construction, insert the words “child support” in reference to the marital home when the parties have elected to omit them.
Moreover, although the consent judgment also failed to denominate possession of the marital home as “alimony,” the circumstances surrounding the agreement reinforce that interpretation. G.S. 50-16.7(a) reads in relevant part: “In every case in which alimony or alimony pendente lite is allowed and provision is also made for support of minor children, the order shall separately state and identify each allowance.” See also G.S. 50-13.4(e). Had the trial court specifically identified the possession of the marital home to be alimony, as it is directed to by the statute, this action might have been forestalled. However, the fact that the judgment granted child support in an express provision, separate from the award of possession of the marital home, indicates that the trial court and the parties intended the awards to be distinguished.
In addition, it may be inferred from the pleadings that the award of possession of the marital home was intended as a response to plaintiffs prayer for alimony. In the action resulting in the consent judgment, plaintiff asked for divorce from bed and board, custody of the minor child, alimony, and child support. Portions of the consent judgment specifically responded to plaintiffs *81requests for divorce, child custody and child support. Although the consent judgment did not expressly respond to the request for alimony, and no award was denominated as such, we cannot agree that no alimony was granted. There is no requirement that alimony be denominated as such for it to be a valid award of alimony. 2 Lee, N. C. Family Law, Alimony, § 135, p. 138. Furthermore, possession of real or personal property, including the marital home, is one form of alimony provided by statute. See G.S. 50-16.7(a)(c); Clark v. Clark, 301 N.C. 123, 271 S.E. 2d 58 (1980). Logic dictates the conclusion that because the consent judgment responded to all other specific requests elsewhere, the award of possession of the marital home was intended to be alimony, in response to that remaining specific request for relief.
Defendant further argues that the findings were insufficient to support an award of alimony. He asserts that there were no findings regarding the grounds for alimony. This contention is without merit. Every ground for divorce from bed and board also serves as a ground for alimony. See G.S. 50-16.2; G.S. 50-7. The trial court found that the parties were married and subsequently separated, and concluded that “the plaintiff had demonstrated to the Court sufficient grounds for divorce from bed and board.” These findings and conclusion are sufficient to buttress an award of alimony.
Defendant also contends that the consent judgment did not award alimony because the parties were not identified as supporting or dependent spouses. However, defendant overlooks the fact that a consent judgment is a contract between parties. A finding of dependency is not required when a judgment ordering alimony is entered into by consent. Cox v. Cox, 36 N.C. App. 573, 245 S.E. 2d 94 (1978).
Finally, defendant challenges the trial court’s conclusion that the alimony award would terminate upon remarriage. Alimony generally ends upon remarriage of the dependent spouse. 2 Lee, N.C. Family Law, Alimony, § 135.1, p. 146. Absent provisions to the contrary, the trial court did not err in concluding that the possession of the marital home was intended to be alimony which would terminate upon remarriage.
In conclusion, we hold that plaintiff was entitled to judgment as a matter of law and that the possession of the marital home *82was an award of alimony which would terminate upon remarriage. Although the trial court entered judgment as judgment on the pleadings, rather than summary judgment, we find that this error was not prejudicial. Therefore, the judgment appealed from is
Judges Hedrick and Hill concur.
