Marital rape should count as two offences (spouse abuse and rape).

@6CQ48MCConstitutionfrom Maine  answered…2yrs

Marital rape should be punished even more severely than non-marital rape.

Who decides whether it is rape? If there is unassailable evidence that it is rape (e.g., unaltered video showing intent and action), only then should it be treated as rape.

Yes. But in case a married person declines having sex with their spouse, after a set amount of time ( for example 6 months ), the spouse would have the right to file for divorce without having to pay mortgage. Also, in case married person declines having sex with their spouse and this leads to the spouse having extra-marital affairs, this could not be grounds for divorce or legal persecution.

Marriages for the sole purpose of sex, without the other parties documented consent, should be considered marriage fraud or, in worse cases, rape. If not those, alimony must be paid along with mortgages

You are a civil terrorist.

You’re a threat to the well being of victims.

No because some spouse's use this excuse to trap there other spouse as a form of blackmail,or do it in spite or revenge.

@Zachary-NeeleyLibertarianfrom Texas  answered…2yrs

Yes, just because two adults are married doesn't mean they automatically consent towards any sexual activity at any time of the day. If it quacks like a duck, walks like a duck, and eats like a duck, it's a duck.

@6B3NZQDRepublicanfrom South Carolina  answered…2yrs

Yes, but the bar for proving there was no consent should be much higher

@6B3W5Y8Greenfrom Georgia  answered…2yrs

Yes, classify it as domestic violence and decriminalize consentual sex with a spouse under the age of 18

@9XFDJCPPeace and Freedom from Michigan disagreed…9mos

decriminalize consentual sex with a spouse under the age of 18

Does that mean decriminalize pedophilia, like 40&16 years old? Or decriminalize 17&18 years old?

Yes. Rape is a crime, no matter the relations of the victim and the rapist.

 @B4L8VLLIndependent from Tennessee answered…1 day

Rape is an abusive situation, it involves force, beatings, possibly weapons. And this would fall under domestic violence, when mental and physical abuse is involved. So I think this would be classified as domestic rape. 2 different types of rape. A non domestic rape victim, rarely knows the victim, and therefore no trust involved.

@B4KT7QSIndependent from Minnesota answered…2 days

Yes, but I think due to evidentiary constraints it will usually be classified as domestic abuse.

@B49ZNDVLibertarian from Ohio answered…4wks

No, it should be recognized as rape and punished, but not as severely as other kinds of rape.

@B3P94H3Democrat from Florida answered…2mos

@B2P45M6Democrat from Washington answered…4mos

If the person did not consent then its rape and should be punished

@9G3HPM9Independent from Indiana answered…2yrs

@9FMP8R5Veteran from West Virginia answered…2yrs

No, it should be classified as its own but punished more severely than non marital rape.

@9MWLZNXWomen’s Equality from Ohio answered…2yrs

Yes, consent should always be called for! This being said if proven guilty things need to be thoroughly investigated.

@9MS88QKDemocrat from Massachusetts answered…2yrs

@9LZ4SW5Libertarian from Pennsylvania answered…2yrs

Rape is abhorrent, but how could marital rape possibly be proven beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law? How can you prove or disprove consent?

@9LV78PFConstitution from New York answered…2yrs

It should be punished, but severely is the thing. Rape is bad, but it’s like a private isolated matter in a marriage, so it’s hard to prove. Innocent till proven guilty, and I think if that’s the kind of relationship you have where that happens, you should get a divorce

@9LJPHQ9Women’s Equality from Florida answered…2yrs

All forms of rape performed on a minor by a major should be punished the same way.

Yes, only if it can be proven it was unwanted. This shouldn't be a vindictive incentive, wasting the court's time.

@9JT5CQ4Peace and Freedom from Maine answered…2yrs

@9JSMZ5HPeace and Freedom from Texas answered…2yrs

Yes, and consensual sex with a spouse under 18 should be considered statutory rape unless they are the same age.

@9J96T4CGreen from Iowa answered…2yrs

Yes, and it should be grounds for automatic annulment of the marriage.

@9J7NXW7Independentfrom Florida  answered…2yrs

No, the punishment should be more severe than domestic violence, but less severe than a non-marital rape.

@9HXV3PGDemocrat from Iowa answered…2yrs

Yes. However, rape is unfortunately not punished severely to start with which desperately needs reformed
