A judge in India has officially confirmed that rape laws do not apply to married couples — once you’re legally wed, forced sex is no longer a crime.
What’s especially chilling is that the judge, Virender Bhat, was hearing a case in which a woman alleged she had been drugged, then forced to marry, and then raped
The prosecutrix (the wife) and the accused (Vikash) being legally wedded husband and wife, and the prosecutrix being major, the sexual intercourse between the two, even if forcible, is not rape and no culpability can be fastened upon the accused.

Maybe, instead of insisting that everything in the world is "rape culture" here in the US, our feminists ought to go over there and start fighting a real fight where it's definitely needed. There are plenty of women in Middle Eastern and Asian countries who could use someone to educate their men on what "rape culture" actually is.

Marital rape was still legal in Britain up until 1998 I think it was.It was obviously frowned upon before that but was officially made illegal by the new Labour government of the time.
Just thought I'd throw that in so that we know it isn't just 'backward brown people' who still practice this.
