Don't break the law -have sex NOW with your SO

Hubby to pay damages to undersexed wife

Published: 05 Sep 2011 10:47 GMT+1
Updated: 05 Sep 2011 10:20 GMT+1



A couple from Nice have been granted a divorce after 21 years of marriage on the grounds of an "absence of sexual relations for several years" which was judged to be "solely the fault of the husband."

The decision, which could cause concern to inattentive spouses across France, was accompanied by a payment of €10,000 ($14,000) in damages from the man to his former wife, according to newspaper Aujourd'hui.

The 51-year-old man, only known as Jean-Louis G., claimed that sex "simply became less frequent over time". He said he had health problems and was tired by his job.
The court of appeal in the southern town of Aix-en-Provence was not convinced by the man's excuses.

"Jean-Louis G. could not offer any justification for the health problems that made it impossible for him to have sexual relations with his wife," the court said.
The court went on to say that there are certain "marriage requirements" and that "sexual relations between spouses are the expression of affection that they have for each other."

After a lengthy legal battle that began in 2009, the case has finally come to a conclusion and Jean-Louis G. will be required to pay the compensation to his sex-starved former wife, Monique.

Aujourd'hui reports that the court did not give any guidance on what level of sexual relations are deemed sufficient and whether the reported French average of twice a week is enough to prevent future spouses from falling foul of the law.

I heard that bad breath are also legitimate grounds for divorce.

Gosh, I'd be stinking rich now if my first marriage had been in France.

Re: Don't break the law -have sex NOW with your SO

I've been here too long. When I see SO in the title I only think of Solothurn.

I'm not two-timing Basel-Stadt with anyone. I'm a one canton type of bloke, thank you very much.

Off topic, but I know what you mean. Until very recently I thought the GE in "GE Money Bank" meant Geneva...

I believe that the Vatican will take your request to sue the man upstairs but I would advise against holding your breath for a result.

Otherwise, maybe EF for keeping you behind a keyboard while you should be out there flirting with cute members of society.

I like to think that slightly shocked but satified look one gets afterwards is "bonus" enough but hell you know it is nice for the lady to buy you the occasional drink.

For my first couple of years in Switzerland, I was convinced that Aargau must be a very industrial canton, factory upon factory crowding the landscape, because almost every business I saw was listed as Acme AG.
