Worst Husband Ever Sues Wife for Not Cooking and Cleaning Enough

This story will make your skin crawl.

Right now I'm sitting at my kitchen table, writing. The surface surrounding my laptop is strewn with crumbs, kids' artwork, and hardened pasta-filled dishes from last night's dinner. There are papers piled on my once-beautiful kitchen windowsill and Cheerios all over the floor. 

And that's just the kitchen. Don't get me started on the rest of the house (Spoiler: Piles of dirty laundry, piles of clean yet-to-be-folded laundry, and toys. So. Many. Toys.).

Luckily, I'm not married to this man, because I would most definitely be in jail. 

A husband in Italy is accusing his wife of "mistreatment of family" and "bad management of domestic affairs" for failing to keep up with the household chores, such as cooking and cleaning. According to Italy's penal code, the law "punishes whoever mistreats a person in their family or a person entrusted to them for reasons of education, care or custody." If convicted, she faces up to six years in jail. 

No word on what this man's endgame is, but if he wins his case, surely he will starve to death atop a mound of garbage without anyone around to feed him and clean his clothes. 

I'm posting these horrific photos of my kitchen because #IStandWithTheWife, and my therapist would think it's a good idea to air my insecurities. Warning, they're graphic.
