Husband to Spend First 18 Months of Marriage in Jail
The Local ^ | 17 Sep 2013

Posted on 09/17/2013 8:32:51 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Some marriages hit the rocks quicker than others it seems. A Frenchman was sentenced to 18 months behind bars this week for a violent attack on his new husband, just hours after they had tied the knot.

Most married couples dream of spending their wedding night together, but for two French newly-weds it didn’t quite work out as planned on Sunday. One man spent the night nursing a black eye while his attacker, none other than his new husband, spent the special night in a prison cell.

The two 22-year-old men from Alencon in Normandy, northern France, became embroiled in a dispute just hours after they had said "yes" and exchanged the rings in the local Town Hall.

As the row escalated into violence, one husband launched a fierce blow to the head of his new spouse that has resulted in them spending their first months of married life apart.

French newspaper Ouest-France reported that a court had taken a dim view of the violent dispute and sentenced the aggressor to 18 months behind bars on Monday.

The sentence was handed down despite him receiving the support of his husband who wanted the charges to be dropped.

The problem was it was not the man’s first offence. His previous convictions have ensured that it will be a while before the newly-weds see each other on the outside.

However the time spent in jail may be for the best and allow a much-needed cooling off period, before they can pick up where they left off in 18 months time.

The story has a major misprint. The proofreader missed where “husband” was mistakenly used instead of “wife”. At least I think that is what happened as the paper also kept using the personal pronoun “his” instead of “her”. Very sloppy but easily corrected.

I’d say there’s just too much testosterone in that marriage.

How culturally insensitive of the court. Don’t they know that fisticuffs are simply traditional gay foreplay?

Wouldn’t that be like sentencing a juvenile delinquent to a year and a half at Disneyworld?

Not newly-weds. Not husbands.

Because baseball and American football are little known in France, apparently the husband and wife could not agree who’d play the receiver and who’d play the pitcher!

I’m guessing they were both virgins(!) before they got “married”, and hadn’t talked about who would be pitching and who would be receiving.

And please, nobody answer this, but I wonder if homosexuals have a preferred “receive or pitch” status, or if they alternate.

Jeez - as if a heterosexual marriage wasn’t tough enough!

Maybe one of them found out the other slept with the best man the night before the wedding.

Hah, you got that right about how tough it is in a hetero marriage.

From what I’ve heard, usually you are in your designated position for the gay men (don’t know about the lesbians) - read this from recovered gay, Robert Lopez. He tells the truth about this life choice. Check him out:

The amusing thing to me in the article is the tone of straight-faced normalcy. Words like husband and spouse are interchanged as needed to avoid stating the laughably absurd. A young husband beat up his husband? No, that won’t work..

I don’t care about the violence they do to one another, but I can’t abide the violence they do to my beloved language.

How many wives beat up their husbands? It happens, I know, but I’d bet it is the husband who’s leaving his tearful wife for an 18 month stint of hard labor picking up soap in the shower.

I think they actually meant, “Pervert to spend first 18 months of Marriage in Jail”

well apparently “lastchance” in post #9, and maybe a few others needed the correction, unless they were just being cute or ironic and thought it was a story about straights full of “typos”.

Two young men are no more married because of some legal fiction than putting a dog in at top hat and calling it Lincoln makes it president.

It's always safer to assume that posters are joking than to "correct" them and make a fool of yourself.

I had a gay friend in Seattle who was adamantly opposed to same-sex marriage. I asked him why one time and he said that gay marriage wasn’t the problem but that gay divorce would kill people. He wasn’t joking, either. I told him that straight marriage was like that too sometimes and he just shook his head and said no, it wasn’t anywhere close. I’ve often wondered since then if maybe he was right.
