Withholding sex from your spouse can lead to financial ruin.
But honey, which came first? The financial ruin or the withholding of sex? (Trick question because nobody is coming, ever!)

Interesting role reversal; in most Western cultu… okay, no, in the U.S.A. the courts are still likely to rule that a man deserves to have sex whenever he wants it from his wife, once married, and that she should submit to that.
Can’t say I agree with the French court, or the wife for monetarily suing her ex-husband over not providing sex, unless they both (or the wife alone) paid for extensive couple’s therapy for a long period of time prior to the divorce, and this lawsuit is to recuperate on the financial loss of that. But the article does not suggest anything like that took place, nor provide enough details to do a deeper search (and my French is virtually absent, to boot).
That said, whilst I may not agree, I also don’t feel bad for the guy; women have been imprisoned, beaten, and even killed in reverse-gender versions of this situation for as long as history has records on this. Perhaps this will get men all around to be more aware of gender disparities.
