Should sex be mandatory in marriage? A judge in France seems to think so.
If you’re married and unhappy with your sex life, should you sue your spouse?
That’s exactly what a woman in France did recently. In a rare decision, a judge ordered her ex-husband pay $14,000 in damages for failing to have enough sex during their 21-year marriage. This raises the question, “Is sex a mandatory part of marriage?”
According to one American study from the General Social Survey, married men and women, on average, have sex with their spouse 58 times a year — a little more than once a week. But 15 percent of married couples haven’t had sex with their spouse in the last six months-to-one-year, according to a study conducted by Georgia State University.
