A businessman was ordered by the court to pay the amount of £180,000 ($215k) to his former wife named Ivana Moral for her unpaid housework for 25 years.
As per the reports, 48-year-old Moral will be going to receive 204,624.86 euros a little around £182,000 in a record of her divorce settlement.
iNews and El Pais newspaper reported, “Ivana Moral will receive a monthly pension of €500 (about $528) from her ex-husband, whom she asked for a divorce from in 2020.”
According to the PEOPLE, “The outlets reported the total amount for the pension was decided by a Málaga judge who based it on the minimum monthly professional wage for the 25 years the pair were married. “
The husband whose name is not revealed yet, was ordered by court to pay £400 (£356) and £600 (£533) to his two daughters, one is 20-years-old and other is 14-years-old.
EuroNews wrote that, throughout her 25-years of marriage, Ivana had been exclusively managing all the house chores.
As per The Mirror, “Ivana Moral, a 48-year-old from Malaga, Spain, told a courtroom in Vélez-Málaga she felt “economically threatened, worthless, always depending on the same person” during her marriage.”
“Over this period, she worked at home raising her two daughters, taking care of her husband, and ensuring their house was “always impeccable”, she told.
One of the local outlets reported that the judge named Laura Ruiz Alaminos calculated the figure based on the annual minimum wage during the former couple’s 25 years of marriage.
Ivana shared that she tied the knot with her husband in the year 1995, and after her marriage she always took good care of him that helped him growing his assets more but she got nothing in return.
“Clearly this was a case of abuse to be completely excluded financially (by my ex-husband) with nothing left after my marriage ended, so me and my daughters were left with nothing after all these years of putting all my time, energy and love in the family,” she said to the iNews.
“I was supporting my husband in his work and in the family as a mother and a father. I was never allowed access to his financial affairs; everything was in his name.”
The mother of two claimed that her ex-husband denied paying the fees of their daughter when she entered in college after turning 16.
Her attorney also told iNews, “This ruling represents the labor of all the women in the shadows and who, without a doubt, constitute a fundamental support in personal, marital, and familiar terms during years and years so that the ex-husband could develop his professional career and a rise in wealth which at the moment of separation could not share. “
“So he could get on in his career, she stayed at home to look after the children, and they never contacted anyone to help her,” attorney Marta Fuentes added.
“She was his shadow, working behind [him] so he could rise professionally and become someone.”
