I came across certain views through media contributing to the opinion that marital rape is no offence. The reason given in support of such an idea was that this measure disrupts the very institution of marriage. What forms an offence is the very act of rape, and this has to be taken as such irrespective of the fact whether it is just a rape or a rape marital in nature. Why rape element should lose its gravity simply because it is marital. It means in other words that the married people are given a licence to torture their partner in any manner they like. There are men who commit numerous brutalities against their spouse claiming it to be their fundamental right misusing the sacred bond of marriage. There are solemn commitments exchanged between wife and husband at the time of their marriage, which practice is followed almost by all religions in the world, and all such commitments are of the nature of mutual trust between the two taking a vow to serve each other faithfully in all the matters all their life, they even take a vow to be and remain faithful to each other for the next seven births of theirs in the universal cycle. Where is the question of any one of them torturing the other? Love is caressing, it can’t assume any kind of brutality on the part of either husband or even wife. Love gives no scope to rape, and if physical relationship is exploited on that count, it is no love at all. In all fairness, if some husband, or in certain exceptional cases, even wife too, indulges into coercively harsh an act, the need is to treat it as an offence punishable in terms of the law applicable in the rape cases.
