Court Orders Husband To Pay Wife For House Chores In 25 years Of Their Marriage
A court in Spain has determined that a 48-year-old lady would be paid 204,000 (about $215,000) by her ex-husband as compensation for performing unpaid housekeeping during their marriage.
According to iNews and the Spanish language daily El Pais, Ivana Moral will get a monthly annuity of €500 (about $528) from her ex-husband, from whom she filed for divorce in 2020.
According to the media, the entire sum for the pension was set by a Málaga court based on the minimum monthly professional pay for the 25 years the couple was married.
According to reports, her ex-husband, who was not identified in the court judgement, was ordered to pay €400 (£356) and €600 (£533) to their two kids, who are now 20 and 14. He is expected to appeal.
According to EuroNews, Moral said she “exclusively” handled the couple’s chores during their marriage.
She also claimed that throughout that period, she was unable to pursue her own profession due to “her exclusive devotion to the house and family,” while her ex-husband “accumulated and exponentially grew his fortune,” according to the site.
Moral’s ex, on the other hand, created a thriving gym company, allowing him to finance costly expenditures, according to iNews.
According to the site, Moral said her ex also refused to pay for one of their daughter’s studies when she reached 16.
