Plus, ways to get over what's-his-face, and contests to "Win A Wife"?
$14,000: That's the amount one French guy was fined for not having enough sex with his now ex-wife, according to The Gloss (that's 10,000 euros, if you're wondering). What a woman! We didn't even know it was possible to collect money for something like that during a divorce settlement, but in the words of the judge on the case: "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." Point well taken, judge. The Gloss had some fun figuring out exactly how much each session of sex that this couple missed out on over 21 years has now cost the poor guy, so check it out.
