An Italian woman whose angry husband refused for 7 years to have sex with her was awarded divorce damages by Italy’s high court this week.
Did you know if she was Jewish she would’ve been entitled to a divorce immediately under halakha? It’s true! The rabbis were all about horny housewives! That’s why as long as a woman’s been to mikvah post-niddah, if she wants it, her husband has to give it up. And on the other hand, if he wants it, she doesn’t have to. That’s fair!
No really, women have “conjugal rights” under Jewish law. Just one more reason why being a Jew rocks. Or sucks, depending on your gender. Or gender-confusion.
