Rape is a serious issue and one which many countries are battling with in present times. India and South Africa are known to have a high level of rape.

Rape is a disdainful act and one that shouldn’t be encouraged. However, is it possible for rape to exist in marriages?

To a lot of people there is nothing like marital rape, but many women report of cases where they were raped by their husbands.

Welcome to this Sunday’s edition of Elcrema Sunday Love Special; do you believe if a husband forcefully has sex with his wife that it is rape?

Drama and Shawn would share their opinions below.

Drama

Absolutely! Rape is forcefully having sex with someone (against their wish). It doesn’t say girlfriend/boyfriend or wife/husband; as long as you’re forcing them to have sex with you against their desire, it is called rape.

Come to think of it, why would anyone force their partner to have sex with them when they do not want to? It is wrong, and shouldn’t be so. Sex isn’t even enjoyable when it’s forced; it’s inflicting pain on the other person and only a sadist would do something like that. Unless you married her against her wish, if she refuses to sleep with you, there’s certainly a genuine reason for that, and you should try to find out why, instead of forcefully putting yourself in her. It could be because she’s not in the mood for it (which is normal), she’s in her period or she’s sick. I don’t think any woman who is married to a man she loves would happily deny him sex, so there’s always a reason for stuff like that when it happens. Find out the reason, instead of forcing yourself on her. It is rape, and if she reports you to the cops, you could be jailed for it.
