The Supreme court of Portugal ordered the man to pay more than 60 thousand euros (about 5.5 million) to his former mistress for the home work it performed for 30 years while they lived together.
Couple has lived together for more than 30 years, during which the woman cared for the house and prepare meals for your partner. The decision stated that the performance of work at home exclusively by one of the members of the Union without compensation "impoverished". At the same time, this also releases another family member "from doing those tasks", which leads to benefits without any cost or fees.
Initially, the woman demanded compensation in the amount of 240 thousand euros (22 million rubles), but the court of first instance in Barcelos did not consider that the plaintiff can rely on some amount of work on the house. Then the woman went to the court of Appeal, which upheld her claim, he decided to pay her compensation in the amount of 60 782 euros.
In order to evaluate the work of women, the court has adopted the criterion of the national minimum wage. He multiplied the sum of the first 12 months, then 30 — for so many years, the couple lived together. Of the total removed one — third the cost of a woman.
