Amorous wives unite! In the most embarrassing lawsuit ever, a man was ordered to pay 10,000 euros for not giving his wife enough love between the sheets during the course of their 21-year marriage.
According to The Telegraph, the woman had already divorced the man, but then took him back to court demanding compensation for the absence of bedroom activity.
The 51-year-old Frenchman was fined under article 215 of France’s civil code. Identified only as Jean-Louis B, he blamed “tiredness and health problems” on his lack of libido.
Apparently, though, that’s no excuse (especially in France) because the judge ruled:
A sexual relationship between husband and wife is the expression of affection they have for each other, and in this case it was absent. By getting married, couples agree to sharing their life and this clearly implies they will have sex with each other.
Talk about getting kicked when you’re down.
