            I just heard this story on the news, and had to look it up. Thank God I don't live in France, or I'd be locked up 'once a month'...lol. Here's the story folks:

            Married couples in France could end up with criminal records for insulting each other during arguments.

            Under a new law, France is to become the first country in the world to ban ‘ psychological violence’ within marriage.

            The law would apply to cohabiting couples and to both men and women.

            It would cover men who shout at their wives and women who hurl abuse at their husbands – although it was not clear last night if nagging would be viewed as breaking the law.

            The law is expected to cover every kind of insult including repeated rude remarks about a partner’s appearance, false allegations of infidelity and threats of physical violence.

            Police are being urged to issue a caution in the first instance, but repeat offenders could face a fine, a restraining order or even jail.

            Critics said the measure was a gimmick produced in response to lobbying by feminists and would be impossible to implement.

            But French premier Francois Fillon, who announced the law, said: ‘The creation of this offence will allow us to deal with the most insidious situations – situations that leave no visible scars, but which leave victims torn up inside.’

            Many believe the offence will be impossible to prove. Psychologist Anne Giraud said: ‘Squabbling couples will allege all kinds of things about each other, but often it will be a case of one person’s word against the other.’

            Sociologist Pierre Bonnet said: ‘The next step will be to make rudeness a criminal offence. The police and courts will be over-stretched trying to deal with numerous cases.’

            A spokesman for Mr Fillon said the law was supported by the government, and was likely to be implemented within six months.


            haha..love the 'nagging' part. That's what us women do best!

            "Today, most of the good people are afraid to be good. They strive to be broadminded and tolerant. It is fashionable to be tolerant but mostly tolerant of evil and this new code has reached the proportions of demanding intolerance of good."
