(London Independent) A woman from Italy could be jailed for up to six years because she does not do enough housework, according to Italian media.

The 40-year-old, from Sonnino in the Lazio region, is being taken to court by her husband.

He claims that her management of household chores is of a low standard and it has led to the “mistreatment of the family”, according to a translation of Ill Fatto Quotidiano by The Local.

The husband also reportedly said he had been “forced to live in conditions with poor hygiene” and that his wife rarely cooked. The so-called negligence had taken place for two years.
