Rape is violence, not sex. The law must not create situations where one cannot seek justice.

Last time I checked, we were criticizing Afghanistan for this very problem. Come on, Singapore. We can do better.

Although in most cases a husband would do his utmost to care for his wife and to protect her interests, not every woman has the priviledge of having a supportive family to turn to, or to know her rights. After reading the Straits Times article this week on wife abuse, perhaps it is time we took a firm stand against marital rape.

Marriage does not legalise rape just like parenting does not legalise neglect or child abuse.

A women should never be forced to have sex. It is not only an irreversible act of violation, but can also lead to serious mental trauma or psychological disturbances. There should not be a double standard to marital cases, if not domestic abuse would be considered acceptable.

Rape is rape, whether within a marriage or not. Marital rape is just as damaging as rape outside of a marriage, and legal penalties should apply accordingly.

No is No. Rape is wrong regardless of the marital vows. Being married is not a "right" to abuse someone in any form.

Forced sex, married or not, is rape.

I do not want to see my friends suffer under their husbands and not be able to do anything about it. It is their right to be safe and happy. And I have the right to protect them.

sex within two persons should be of consent from both parties. any violence involved that is not agree on is against our very basic human rights. i think the law should protect women even after they are marry.
