Wife made to do 25 years of unpaid housework to get £182,000 from ex-husband

A woman in the middle of a divorce claims her ex owes her £182,000 for unpaid domestic labour over the last two and a half decades.

The amount was calculated by a judge using the estimated number of hours she spent cleaning over the last 25 years and multiplied by the minimum wage.

Ivana Moral claims the amount she is owed for the length of their marriage is 204,624.86 euros (£182,000).

Judge Laura Ruiz Alaminos at a court in Velez-Malaga in southern Spain revealed during the settlement that Ivana had been responsible for the entire upkeep of the house.

They added she had spent nearly all her time working in the home and caring for their two daughters.

Speaking to Cadena Ser radio, Ivana claimed her husband wanted her solely to work within the home or occasionally within gyms he owned, where she handled “public relations and acted as a monitor”.

She told the radio station: “I have dedicated myself exclusively to housework, looking after my husband and the house.

“He made me take on the specific role of doing domestic chores, to the extent that I was in a place where I couldn’t really do much else.”

The marriage between Ivana and her husband was governed by a separation of property regime – meaning the earnings of each person is theirs alone.

But the arrangement “would have left Ms Moral with no access to any of the wealth acquired through years of partnership” according to reports.

She told the publication: “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.

“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.”

Her ex, who had aimed to divide their home and possessions following a divorce, is likely to appeal the decision.

He must also pay her a pension equivalent to £444 per month as well as £356 and £533 to his two daughters, who are now aged 20 and 14.
