Marital rape

Rape is rape even if the person doing it is an intimate partner.my latest work is on marital rape. One my ask how
this is possible since the theory is that once one is married they are legally entitled to conjugal right,this is true
however marriage and conjugal rights does not automatically mean consent. Marital rape is mainly experienced
alongside abuse. The woman can be physically abused and assaulted. The rape occurs before or after the assault.There are many way marital rape occurs women who go through this should be encouraged to voice it
so that our government can implement a law against it and not view it as a lesser crime!

Very true!

Rape is rape, you're exactly right. It may be hard for some people to understand this, but for me, it comes down to one word-- consent. People need to understand this, and to speak out when it happens so that it can be stopped. Government law is a great idea, and I know that some countries are implementing this definition now.

Thank you for sharing your point of view!
