A 51-year-old Frenchman was recently fined about $15,000 for not having sex with his 47-year-old (now ex) wife of 21 years. Article 215 of France’s civil code states that married couples must agree to a “shared communal life,” and a judge in the Frenchman’s case ruled that the law implies that married couples must get busy on a regular basis, so he was ordered to pay up for being stingy in the sack during his marriage.
This got me thinking about the other ways spouses may fail to “share a communal life.” Does anything compare to lack of sex? I’m willing to bet “yes,” but I’m interested to see what others say. If you’re married or live with a partner, please take this poll and let’s see how you rank things of importance in your communal life together.
