Marital Rape

Xxx v. Xxx

  • Order

Divorce – Marital Rape – Treating wife’s body as something owing to husband and committing sexual act against her will is nothing but marital rape. Merely for the reason that the law does not recognise marital rape under penal law, it does not inhibit the court from recognizing the same as a form of cruelty to grant divorce – Marital rape is a good ground to claim divorce. 2021 (4) KCC 159 : 2021 (4) KHC 457 : 2021 (4) KLT 694
