I work in a VWO dealing with children and youth, age ranging from 3.5 - 20 years.
I have been involved in social work for 12.5 years. During my work with children and youths I do interract with many parents, mostly women.
It is indeed very sad to note that there are many women who suffer sexual viloence / abuse in silence because men tend to think that it is their marital right to have sex with his lawful wife with or without consent.
Who is going to stop the abuse or protect the women of our country? I would think women deserve the right to choose, and be free of any sexual abuse.

Protect the girls for our future

I would also suggest that there be a need for gender neutrality in future laws, as well as reviews to current law.

As a marriage counsellor living in Singapore for the past 14 years, in my voluntary role as the President of the Singapore Association for Counselling, and as a father to two teenage daughters I believe it is important for us to give full legal protection by eliminating any and all immunities to the charge of marital rape. I'm confident that our justice system has the appropriate structures to prevent abuse of such a change.

Totally agree!

Intimacy between 2 people is about vulnerability, love and mutual trust. When that trust is abused, and the vulnerability has become a fear, it is an act despicable of any man.

I strongly appeal, together with many other fellow female friends and concerned parties to let this be done.

Men just take it for granted that they can "have" the wife whenever they feel like. It is NOT true!
