Bi man ordered to pay ex-wife "emotional damages" for coming out... but that got overturned

A judge has overturned a ruling that would have forced a bisexual man in Spain to pay his ex-wife for emotional damages – even though they divorced over a decade ago.

Javier Vilalta’s former spouse sued after she found out he had sex with a man before they were married. She accused him of “hiding his homosexuality” and won a monetary judgment for €10,000 for each year they were married.

The ex-wife also wanted the marriage annulled, saying he used her “as a social refuge” despite his protestations to the court that “I wasn’t gay at that time. I had had a brief homosexual experience.”

“Even if we admit that Javier was in a relationship with a man in the past, in any case, there is no reason why a bisexual person cannot have a happy marriage,” his attorney told the court.


What the actual fuck?! Thank goodness it was overturned. What a bizarre story.

1. These sorts of stories are confusing for me in terms of what I should feel ...

I'm happy to learn the proper response is a simple 'wtaf, bizarre?!'

Thus not intimating whether, in one's own opinion, one side or the other is in the wrong.

Putting this lesson in my toolkit for sure
