Marital Rape : Biggest Dilemma Before Law & Society
Ratnesh Singh Tandan & Gautami Deshmuk, Guru Ghasidas Vishwavidyalaya, Bilaspur.*
"I say nothing, not one word, from beginning to end, and neither does he.
If it were lawful for a woman to hate her husband, I would hate him as a rapist."
- Philippa Gregory
Rape is considered a most heinous and abhorrent crime in every civilsed society. Every decent person condemns it and even inmates treat rape accused differently in prisons.Marriage in India is a sacred institution; it implies lots of privileges and obligations to husband and wife. But sometimes it creates suffocation to vulnerable parties i.e. women. This is the junction where question arises, is it really a unquestionable and absolute right of husband for sex with her spouse?
