Marital Rape Laws in India

Does a woman or man lose their degree of sexual autonomy after marriage? Hon’ble Justice DY Chandarchud took a stand in the negative on the Right to say “no” (to sex) after marriage. It is generally believed that either of the spouses must ensure each other’s approval on sexual intercourse after marriage but in ancient India, marital rape was not even accepted as an issue.  The primary reason behind this mentality was the patriarchal framework of Indian society and that women were considered a ‘property’ or a ‘chattel’ of their husbands. This does sound orthodox! However, in present India, courts are taking up cases based on this issue although India is among the 36 countries where marital rape is not yet criminalized, unlike 150 other countries. Read this article to know about the pros and cons of criminalizing marital rape and judicial precedents!
