A woman from Genova has reported her husband for "maltreatment" after he allegedly refused to have sex with her during their three years of marriage.

She complained that her husband hasn't touched her since their wedding night, adding that up until then, their sex life was perfectly normal, ArticoloTre reported.

The 40-year-old cited a lack of sex as a key reason for the marriage breakdown as part of the case for their legal separation.

The couple did, however, manage to have a daughter after using artificial insemination, the newspaper reported.

It is now up to the court to decide whether the husband's abstinence constitutes an offence.

A similar case occurred in France in 2011, resulting in a 51-year-old man being fined €10,000 for not having sex with his wife.
