Italian 'cuckold' suing wife's lover


An Italian man is suing his wife's lover for £500,000 in Italy's first-ever case of a cuckold seeking monetary compensation for “moral damages” caused by an extra-marital affair.


The 45-year-old military officer has demanded 200,000 euros for himself and 400,000 euros for his two children – a 14 year old daughter and a 10 year old son - in the precedent-setting case, which began this week in the town of Spoleto, in Umbria.

The plaintiff, whose name has not been released, claims that his 39-year-old wife’s affair caused her to develop “obsessive behaviour that led her to ruin the life of the family and to avoid her conjugal obligations.”

The husband also said her affair had sent him into a spiral of depression.

The Telegraph


The 39-year-old alleged lover, insists that he is just good friends with the woman, a teacher who lives with her husband in nearby Spoleto.

What I don't understand is why the husband is still with the wife?

If we are all clear on the word cuckold, then he participated.

The news is silly.

Instead of suing, he just accept the fact that he enjoyed watching his wife pork strangers. They clearly made these choices together. Did he think this was good for the marriage?

I don't think that's what it means


Cuckold is a historically derogatory term for a man who has an unfaithful wife.

In modern usage, a cuckold can also mean a male fetishist who gains sexual gratification from his partner having intercourse with other people

en.wikipedia.org...


I take it the word is being used in the sense of an 'unfaithful wife' rather than he being part of the infidelity.

There seems to be two definitions to "cockold"; a man who participates in the infidelity of a wife and a man who stays with a wife who has committed adultery unbeknown to him.

I think the latter stretches the definition too much. I hope he wins his case and sues the cheat. He can always deal with his wife when the children grow up and leave her.

I am not sure I agree.

If I go to a restaurant and order a steak that someone else claimed as theirs; how am I to blame for eating it?

He can sue his wife. She has the agreement with her husband.

It really depends on the laws in Italy. Marriage is not only a legal contract between two people but it also places certain obligations on the wider community. These obligations are seen in the tax laws, laws of inheritance, human rights laws and there are also cultural and customary implied social contracts.

If the male adulterer knew the woman he is after is married, he maybe able to sue.

I don't think he will win but I sure hope he does.

Fair point but if you went to a restaurant and ate someone else's steak in the knowledge that it was someone else's steak, then that would be theft.

Whether you ate it or took it home and kept it, it would still be theft.

You could also be sued for damages.

Perhaps a better analogy would be what if you took some else's bicycle for a ride but intended to only borrow it rather than deprive the owner of it's use on a permanent basis.

Would that be theft?

I image the bike owner could still sue for damages that have naturally arisen from the 'borrowing' of the bike for a ride.

Are you insinuating that the cheating wife is a 'bike'?

Only if many men have borrowed her for a ride.

Then she would be called the village bike.

You are right. I was mining an obvious seam. BTW, I never knew kangaroos have biceps and deltoids like in your avatar.

I'm confused...why is this news? But I'm also confused because in a cuckold situation the man agrees to watch or just let his wife be with other men. If she became obsessive about it then that was a risk he should have thought out in the beginning. If it just meant that she was unfaithful to him then why wouldn't the article just say that? But no it used the word 'cuckold' which to me in this case means that this was a sexual game they were both participating in and this was a possible risk that came true. I wouldn't doubt if he even talked his wife into doing it in the first place and then it just took on a life of its own from there.

I hope he doesn't win (if it was an agreed upon arrangement). You play with fire you might get burned. Responsibility for our actions is paramount to the evolution of our species.
