How could it be rape, if both were married?
How could he be jailed, for loving his wife?
It all sounded so unreal, but it still felt true.
He had been raping his wife, for months and years even in her bleeding periods.
He never asked her yes or no.
She had to, is what her parents taught her.
Because no wife should say no to her husband.
Because he says he loves her.
But you could have said to him, when you were on your bleeding periods.
And you could have said no to him when you felt unwell.
And you could have said no to him, because you just didn’t want to.
So many wives have been victims of marital rape since years
So many husbands have turned legal rapists from lovers
So many families have asked women not to speak about this sexual harassment
So many FIRs have never been had option to getting filed.
So many young boys have been taught this crime as a ritual.
So many young daughters have been trained to fulfill their duties towards their spouses.
She never had the option to work, it was an illusion.
He didn’t want her to, that was the truth.
But as the society says,
If marital rape isn’t an actual thing, and being a housewife is a job
Then isn’t this sexual harassment at workplace?
