In the recently promulgated anti-rape ordinance a parliamentary committee has endorsed the government’s decision not to treat “marital rape” as a sexual offence.

According to them leaving scope for the wife to accuse her husband of rape can destroy the institution of marriage. However nothing has been said on rape in live-in relationships.Thousands of girls in our country have to undergo mental and physical torture during marital rape so it’s sadden to know that still it’s not considered a crime.

Marital sex is another form of rape and as heinous as it. So there should a punishment for the same.
