Hope we all are having an incredible day? Yes I talked about consistency, it’s so funny because I have several post saved, but I’m just like it is really not the right time for them. I guess it’s the right time for this post, since the issue of rape has become rampant in this side of the world.
Last week in class my lecturer was talking about a topic I found very interesting. His answer was that( although, he can’t force his wife if she refuses but culturally speaking, a man can’t rape his wife). And I asked why, majority of the guys in my class had one unique reply( after paying her bride price).
There are so many women going through this, but because of our culture we become ignorant.
What then is rape?
Rape means sex without consent
Afterwards, I asked from a few of my friends their opinion on this issue. They all said it is true that a married woman can be raped. My friend even gave an instance that happened in her vicinity, where a married man beat his wife because she didn’t consent to his sexual desire. The man happened to be Someone who drinks a lot.
For me, a married woman can be raped. Reason being that she isn’t your entitlement and I think there are better ways to have pleasure with your wife. She’s your partner and not your property. Rape is rape. Rape within marriage is called marital rape. It’s a big deal in other countries. Sadly, Nigeria’s law doesn’t recognise it yet.
So I’m throwing it out there, what’s your opinion about this topic, your contributions, what are your thoughts. Comment below and I’ll see you on my next post…….. BYE
