It may be every man’s dream to have a wife who loves to cook and clean for him, but should a woman be sent to jail for not living up to the dream? Apparently in Italy, the answer is yes.


A 40-year-old Italian woman is headed to trial after her 47-year-old husband claims his wife neglected and abused him by not cooking and cleaning enough, and by sometimes kicking him out of the bedroom, according to multiple media reports.

According to The Telegraph, the woman faces two to six years behind bars if convicted of violating an Italian law that “punishes whoever mistreats a person in their family or a person entrusted to them for reasons of education, care or custody.”

The woman had a preliminary hearing and the Italian judges decided not to dismiss the case, but rather to send it to trial.

Many Italians are shocked that the case has gone this far.

Italy certainly is known for their crazy court system, but this takes the cake. How could this possibly be happening in this day and age? It’s a complete and total farce.
