the "sleep with me or lawyer up" BLOW OFF

In America, it's pretty much expected that married couples will eventually stop having sex. You've all seen those Whitney billboards--- half of all marriages end in sweatpants! But in France, it appears that things work a little different. If your spouse stops having sex with you...you get to sue them!

Our resident Single Asian Female (who may need to change her name. She's still Asian, just not single anymore) sent me this article about a married couple who were divorcing in France and the wife actually won a lawsuit against her husband for not having sex with her. Here's what happened. The couple got divorced after 21 years of marriage, because the wife claimed that her husband withheld sex. The divorce was granted and it was ruled the husband was solely at fault for the split. Seriously, the whole "no fault" divorce thing in Cali is so stupid. It's always someone's fault. But even after the divorce, the wife took him back to court to sue for the no sex thing. The husband blamed the lack of sex on tiredness and health problems, but apparently the judge wasn't buying it. He stated that “A sexual relationship between husband and wife is the expression of affection they have for each other, and in this case it was absent. By getting married, couples agree to sharing their life and this clearly implies they will have sex with each other.” The wife was awarded close to the equivalent of $12,000.

I'm really into this! For starters, it kind of deconstructs that whole myth that guys want sex more than girls do. Not always the case. It also gives couples an incentive to bone. Like...the next time you're not in the mood if your husband or wife said "fuck me or pay me $12,000" wouldn't you instantly drop trow? But then again, I'm easy. I'd drop trow for $50.
