As The Telegraph reports: “The ex-husband claimed ‘tiredness and health problems’ had prevented him from being more attentive between the sheets.”  

The judge has ruled in the wife's favor, deciding that a French civil code requiring married couples agree to a "shared communal life" implies that marriage includes sexual relations.

I have to admit it does sound a little funny, but no I definitly do not think this is a good ruling. You don't have to have a lot of sex to have a good or bad marriage
