A woman who is trapped in a relationship in which she is forced to have sex against her wishes is just a sex slave. Even worse: a married woman in India, who is in such a relationship, is like a slave of yore when slavery was legal

Um, consider rape is already illegal and literally nothing is done about it unless it happens to a high profile foreigner, good luck with that.

Yes--Ken O.--and I have the highest empathy for their plight. This goes on in every country and you would never guess who the victims are. Usually, it includes other physical, emotional and mental abuse. The scarring lasts forever. It happens to princesses, peasants, mothers, daughters, sisters. Thanks Lynn. Signed, noted.

In my opinion a married woman should not open her bedroom in front of people. This is a common saying throughout this world in every place, society and culture. Then why she did this. Did someone took advantage of her. ? Married relationship is not a crime. This we all should understand clearly. Is marital rape icriminalize in Western world?

These emotional, physical,mental abuse, they r every where. What can change it is worldly education and ethnics along with spiritual level. Otherwise govt can do nothing about it. It has to start from grassroots level. Teach ur child respect for every relation and u stick to it ur self and become a beacon for younger generations!

If they had someone like Kim Davis, they’ll be able to stop all marriage licenses until marital rape is outlawed.

But knowing how Ms. Davis thinks, she’ll probably be on the side of the rapists!

So that may not have been a good idea! They’re better off with no Ms. Davis in their midst!

enforce the law...educate boy children to respect women....in ALL countries! Speak up against rape jokes! Speak up against music that humiliates women...period! We are not Ho's we are human beings. Stop bragging about scoring on women...some guy will be bragging about scoring on your sister!
