Woman faces 6 years jail time for not doing enough housework

An Italian woman could spend six years behind bars because she has failed to do enough housework according to her husband.

Italian media are reporting a man from Sonnino has taken his wife to court for “mistreatment of the family”, because she does not cook or clean enough. If found guilty, the woman could spend up to six years in jail.

n his statement, the husband, who is seven years his wife’s senior, claimed he had been “insulted” for over two years by his wife’s negligence.


A statement released by the husband says he has been “insulted” for over two years by his wife’s “poor management of the household chores”, The Local reports. He claims that on occasion his wife kicks him out of their bedroom, food he has bought has to be thrown out because she rarely cooks, and he has been “forced to live in conditions with poor hygiene”.

The matter is set to go to trial on October 12th.

    Why doesn’t he just leave her if things are so bad? Sounds like a way to get rid of her for 6 years if you ask me. He’ll get the house, the kids, and 100% of everything, at least until she gets out. This could start a whole new trend in the way couples separate and divorce. .

    Heaven forbid he helped with housework or wonder why he was kicked out of the bedroom, having a wife doesn’t immediately mean the house is clean and sex is on demand. Here’s hoping he gets a female judge ?
