Beware if the mood has left the marriage, at least in France! A judge in France has ruled that a 51-year-old man must pay his 47-year-old ex-wife damages for failing to fulfill her sexual needs for 21 years.
The Telegraph reports that a man from Nice, in southern France, known in court as Jean-Louis B., must pay his wife 10,000 euros — or $13,965 — to compensate for a “lack of sex over 21 years of marriage.”
The man was fined under section 215 of France’s civil code, which says married couples agree to a “shared communal life.”
He argued he was often tired and had health problems that prevented him from being sexually active with his ex, but the judge decreed: “A sexual relationship between husband and wife is the expression of affection they have for each other, and in this case it was absent.”
The ruling comes two years after a judge deemed the man solely responsible for the couple’s divorce because of his refusal to have sex with his wife.
Whether pop culture played a role in the attack remains to be seen, as 19-year-old Lyle Monroe Bensley awaits a psychiatric evaluation in jail on burglary charges in Galveston, Texas.
Found growling and hissing in a parking lot and wearing only boxer shorts, the pierced and tattooed Bensley claimed he was a 500-year-old vampire who needed to “feed,” Galveston Police Capt. Jeff Heyse said.
Vampires have been a focal point of literature since Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel, “Dracula”. But fascination, particularly among young people, has peaked in recent years with the popularity of the “Twilight” books about teenage vampires and the television series, “True Blood.”
Just a screw-ball in my humble opinion.
A woman robbed a Colorado bank by passing her official HIV status card from a local clinic and a note saying she would infect a teller with AIDS if the clerk didn’t hand over money, police said on Friday.
Jeff Satur, spokesman for the Longmont, Colorado police department, said detectives are searching for a pale woman between the ages of 55 and 75 with a “boney build.” Although she blacked out her name from the status card the teller did so most of the letter and they are investigating wit the local clinics help.
Satur said a woman, who was wearing a train conductor’s cap and a gray sweat shirt, walked into a Wells Fargo bank inside a Safeway grocery store on Thursday night and handed a note to a teller.
“She indicated she had AIDS and would give it to a teller if she didn’t cooperate,” Satur said.
The woman coughed frequently into a blue bandana during the robbery, and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, Satur said.
Police and the FBI released still photographs of the robbery and are reviewing additional photographs and surveillance video from the bank’s parking lot to try and identify the suspect.
She is described as about 5-feet 6 inches tall, and weighing between 130 and 150 pounds.
No weapon was displayed during the robbery and no one was injured, police said.
The social network fan has had all her online pals’ profile pics tattooed on her limb.
She filmed herself getting the 152 prints and posted the clip on YouTube. The unnamed Dutch woman, who goes by the username susyj87, said: “Pretty amazing, right? I’m really proud of it. Hope you like it.”
But one YouTube user posted: “What if someone changes their profile pic?” And let’s hope she doesn’t fall out with anyone.
