TOKYO – A cheating woman has been forced to pay compensation to a man for having sex with his wife.

Tokyo District Court ordered the unnamed 37-year-old woman had to pay out 110,000 yen (£725) at a hearing on February 16.

The rare court ruling recognised that extramarital sex between same-sex partners is infidelity under the law.

The husband, 39, had filed a lawsuit against his 35-year-old wife’s lover in relation to the affair after the pair met online.

The accused argued that her actions didn’t break up the marriage and so did not constitute infidelity.

But the court ruled the affair had undermined the peace, reports Asahi.
