Marital Rape

I am now addressing my mind to the question of marital rape now that I have discovered this is a question that is exercising Singaporeans.

While it is only humane to formally proclaim that a wife is not her husband's to treat as his sex slave, surely she must also be obliged to give him reasonable access?

It is therefore arguably unnecessary to have such a law, because if he rapes her regularly she would divorce him or run away, and if she gives him no sexual access whatseover he will seek sex elsewhere, thus jeopardising if not actually terminating the marriage.

In practice it is hardly ever invoked and was always meant as a sop to the feminists.
