A court in France apparently ordered a man to pay a whopping 10,000 euros ($13,500) in damages to his sexually frustrated ex-wife after he failed in his marriage “duties” by withholding lovemaking from her for years. The ruling, which was published in France’s Gazette du Palais judicial review said 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, said a report in the Herald Sun, who are both 51, married in 1986 and have two children. They divorced in January 2009 in Nice.
