Be careful what you think. It might annul your marriage.
An Italian couple has won the right to have their marriage annulled because of adultery—of the mind. The wife didn’t sleep with any other men, but she openly spoke about it with her husband before their marriage. According to the courts, that’s a big no-no:
The decision handed down recently by Italy’s Court of Cassation upheld a lower court’s decision and also a decision made at the Catholic Church Ecclesiastical Court.
The court’s ruling said that the wife failed to comply with one of the principles of marriage and the court considered her spoken desires for an open marriage as good as committing adultery, a court official said.
The husband, who willingly married despite knowledge of wife’s feelings, will not be required to pay alimony.
It’s only a matter of time before psychics are brought in to help solve annulment cases.
