Wife Faces 6 Years in Jail for Not Cooking & Cleaning Enough & That Sounds Like a Vacation

A husband in Italy is not pleased with how his wife has been treating him, so he's taking things to extreme measures. He's suing his wife for "mistreatment of the family," because she allegedly has been neglecting the cooking and cleaning.


According to the lawsuit, the woman, 40,  from Sonnino (south of Rome), has been charged with "poor management of the household chores." The husband, 47, says he is "insulted" by her negligence, which he claims has been going on for two years.

Apparently, she has even kicked him out of the bedroom a few times. Now that one is a totally mystery, right? What lady wouldn't want to invite this gem of a guy into her bed to have his way with her?

I'm actually more surprised that he'd want her to perform her "wifely duties," as he claims that he's been "forced to live in conditions with poor hygiene," and that a lot of the food he bought for his wife to cook ended up in the trash.

The most surprising thing about this case is that it's actually going to trial in October of this year, and that the woman faces up to six years in jail.

I'm sorry, what? I'm really hoping that there is more to the story than this poor woman not doing her chores. What woman would want to, with a spouse like this? Instead of encouragement, support, help, or whatever she may need, he blows her the ultimate insult by suing her.

Even if he didn't want to get to the bottom of the issue and actually work on his marriage, why not just divorce her? Maybe she really does have some sort unfixable psychological block, but there's absolutely no excuse for treating another human being like this. That's just rude and not a little bit awful.

Here's to hoping that the judge laughs in this guy's face when he hears the charges. But hey, even if she does end up in prison, it still might be better than living with this crybaby.
