Article 215 of France’s civil code states that married couples must agree to a shared communal life. Should that mean before couples set themselves up for the dearly beloved we are gathered here today shindig, they ought to coordinate out their sex wants. “Honey I’m gonna want to roll in the hay at least this many times for the rest of said lives together…”? Frankly, that’s not a bad idea. Discussions should be had on this topic fo sho. But to require under a legal ruling that the former husband of a currently disbanded marriage be instructed to pay around $14,000 to his ex for “lack of sex over 21 years of marriage”. Seems a little extreme, no? He claims he was tired (a lot).
A judge in the south of France’s highest court in Aix-en-Provence 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.
Just curious, how did they settle on this $14,000 amount?? Is that the going rate for almost two dozen years of lost marital affection?
