Any time a woman says no, that's rape man! No matter whom it is with.

Exactly CRYN! But the argument is that bitter women may lie about a rape and there is no way to prove if it was in fact rape or consensual sex between a married couple. Marital rape is hard to prove, so many believe women shouldn't be able to press rape charges against their husbands.

It would indeed be hard to prove.

I'm agreeing that's it difficult to prove, but I do think that Cryn is right. If a woman says no, then it means no. And where there's a will, there's a way. The truth usually comes out in a matter of time... it's just that sometimes it takes longer than others.

of course.

You mean they can't already?
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 7/13/03 - 8:37:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
if they're actually raped, yeah!

How can a husband rape the women he is married too? That isn't right.

Spousal rape is law in SD, I know for sure. I don't know about the rest of the country. It's hard to win a case like that, but it has happened.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 7/13/03 - 9:30:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
i dont see how that's different from abuse
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 7/13/03 - 9:36:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
it seems like it would be hard to prove but yes they should!!

Yes just because your married dosent mean you cant be raped - if you say no its not and thats it.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 7/14/03 - 9:34:37 AM EST (GMT-5)
What a scary picture.

Thanks for the link Falcon. Shocking numbers! From the link . . "If you only count women who have been married, 14% - or one in every seven married women - reported either a completed or attempted rape by a husband/ex-husband." That link has some great info on the subject, my question was encouraged by one of the Law and Order episodes, I didn't know a lot of the facts.

The alternative being that a husband could force sex out of his wife, absolutely spousal rape should be prohibited, and, I believe, is in most places.

maybe they're just role-playing?

As long as she isn't violating the marraige contract.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 8/2/03 - 5:18:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
UMM.. YEAH!!!!!
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 8/2/03 - 5:20:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
Marriage contract what are you talking about?
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 8/2/03 - 5:25:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
If by "marriage contract" you meant “The Vow”, then rape is not loving nor respectful, so I guess she has all rights to press charges, after all the vow is for both, Real Blade.

One thing that bothers me about that page is that they call it "Wife Rape". I'm sure most of the victims are women, but just like normal rape, I'm sure there are men victims as well, and I think that puts a stigma out that would keep them from reporting it if indeed it did happen.

Male rape is believed to be a myth by most (not me), so I guess marital-male-rape would be almost impossible to prove.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 8/2/03 - 5:31:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't see it any harder to prove than spousal rape of a man. If you're married, that would mean to most that you always consent to sex. While you may not, I don't think it would be any harder to prove that a husband raped his wife than a wife raped her husband.

I guess it's harder for one woman to rape a man. Gang rapes committed by women sound more plausible. Excuse me for stating the obvious, but women tend to be smaller and not as strong as men, which makes it physically harder for a woman to rape a man. I guess it's possible if he's drunk or something, other wise . . I don't see how it could happen.
