Bride 'Raped by Husband on Wedding Night': Who's in the Wrong?
this has been brought to my attention browsing the internet.
"A husband raped his new wife on their
wedding night after she told him she didn't want to have sex, a court heard.
woman, who is in her 20s, told Exeter Crown Court she was so drunk after she
returned home from the wedding reception that she told her husband she did not
want to have sex.
her husband ignored her pleas and forced her into it against her will.
is also charged with raping her another four times during their two-year
to say, it has sparked some interesting debate. Those who are siding with the
woman are generally saying that a woman has a right to deny sex even to her
husband. If he encroaches on that right, then it
is rape. Others are suggesting that to deny the man sex on his wedding night is
cruel; why’d she marry the guy anyway? Another thing that I noticed that struck me as
interesting is that those who sided with the woman tended to be women and,
likewise, men were siding with the man.
your take? Who is in the wrong?
