Husband Ordered To Pay (ex)Wife For Lack Of Sex

  1. A court in France has ordered a man to pay €10,000 ($13,500) in damages to his long-frustrated ex-wife after he failed in his marriage "duties" by withholding sex from her for years.

    In the May ruling, published on Tuesday in the Gazette du Palais judicial review, an appeals court in the southern city of Aix-en-Provence upheld an earlier decision to award the damages for "absence of sexual relations".

    The couple, who are both 51, married in 1986 and have two children. They divorced in Nice in January 2009.

    "The wife's expectations were legitimate in the sense that sexual relations between married people are an expression of their mutual affection and part of the duties that proceed from marriage," the court said.

    It dismissed the husband's argument that health problems and long working hours had simply reduced the opportunities for the couple to have sex.

    The court ruled that he had not proved "any health problems that would make him completely incapable of having intimate relations with his wife".

  9. Just remember my saying:
    A woman is never right, she is just ocassionally not wrong.
  10. Well, thats the thing. The last time I saw something comparable, it was about how a wife should have sex even if shes not really keen on it, to help with a long term stable relationship. It was decried as spousal ****. (By f*mininst bloggers, naturally)
  11. God, could you imagine the outrage if a husband sued the wife?
