impotent ex-husband must pay damages
http://story.news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20050512/od_nm/odd_ita...

ROME (Reuters) - An impotent Italian man who kept his problem a secret from his wife until after their wedding must pay her damages for 'eroding' her right to have a family, Italy's Supreme Court has ruled.

The woman, identified by the Italian media as Cristina S., was quick to get her marriage annulled in the 1990s after learning to her horror that her husband could not consummate it.

She then demanded damages, saying she had been robbed of her "right to sexuality" and the promise of a family. Despite losing legal battles in lower courts, she kept appealing, and finally the Supreme Court found in her favor.

3. But if she got an annulment, how is her right to sex and a family
eroded? She's free to marry again, with the full blessing of the church, assuming she is young enough to find someone else. (The story didn't say how old she is.) Not to downplay his actions in keeping this from her, but how did she sustain any losses? :shrug:
