It is only March, but we can already give out the worst husband of the year award.
A husband in Italy is accusing his wife of ‘mistreatment of family’ and ‘bad management of domestic affairs’ after she failed to do enough cooking and cleaning for him, because of course these are ‘woman’s jobs’ …
The husband made a formal complaint to the police and rather than dismiss the case they have referred it to judicial authorities – who have sent the matter to trial.
According to Italy’s penal code, the law “punishes whoever mistreats a person in their family or a person entrusted to them for reasons of education, care or custody.” If convicted, she faces up to six years in jail.
The whole situation seems particularly confusing, not to mention barbaric. If the husband wins his case and says goodbye to his wife for six years, he will clearly starve to death seeing as he is unable to look after himself.
This husband takes on a whole new meaning to the term ‘man child’.
