We’ve all heard the phrase “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach,” but one Italian man is taking the expression to new heights. The Local reports that a 47-year-old man from Lazio has allegedly decided to sue his wife because she doesn’t cook enough, and because she has been ignoring her stereotypical household roles as a woman. 

The 40-year-old woman now faces a possible sentence of up to six years in jail for “mistreatment of the family,” after her husband alleged that she practiced “poor management of the household chores” and kicked him out of the bedroom.

The man claims that he has had to deal with her negligent behavior for the last two years. Meanwhile, we can only assume the idea of the man cooking and cleaning himself is too much for his limited mind to handle.


According to Italian news outlet Il Fatto Quotidiano, the trial has been set for October 12th of this year.
