Marriage is becoming legalized slavery and bondage for the males in India.
There is no guarantee of #Sex, there is no guarantee that the wife would be well behaved or a good companion, but every opportunity has been used to ensure that #Maintenace #alimony #wife-support is paid by me
Myriad laws have come to protect ONLY THE WIFE and not the other elders or kids involved
Hence Marriage is making lesser and lesser sense for MEN.
Slowly it’s becoming a great bonus for the Lawyers, courts and legal industry. It’s a great source of income and attention for lawyers who actively work on matrimonial cases. Its a great source of attention for feminists, who take every case, twist it and blame India men
Sadly, More and more judgements are just reinforcing this trend
Marriage doesn’t mean consent for sex: Delhi High on marital rape
The Delhi High Court, while hearing petitions on making marital rape an offence, has observed that physical force is not necessary for rape as a man could bring her wife under financial pressure to force her for sex. It also held that marriage doesn’t mean that wife is always consenting for physical relation with her husband.
“Force is not a pre condition of rape. If a man puts his wife under financial constraint and says he will not give her money for household and kids expenses, unless she indulges in sex with him and she has to do it under this threat. Later, she filed a rape case against the husband, what will happen,” the court said.
The court rejected the arguments put forward by the NGO Men Welfare Trust which said that in a spousal relationship, use of force or threat of force are important elements to constitute as rape. The NGO is opposing the plea to make marital rape an offence.
The NGO’s representatives Amit Lakhani and Ritwik Bisaria cited several laws – Prevention of Women from Domestic Violence Act, harassment to married woman, sexual intercourse with wife without her consent while she is living separately and unnatural sex – to put forward their point that the wife enjoys protection from sexual violence in a wedlock, PTI reported.
A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and C Hari Shankar also observed that marriage gives the right to both man and woman to say no to physical relations.
“Marriage does not mean that the woman is all time ready, willing and consenting (for establishing physical relations). The man will have to prove that she was a consenting party,” the bench observed.
