    Dick Black is a raving lunatic. No means no outside of a marriage and inside of a marriage. Men do not have the right to demand or force sex upon their wives.

    I fail to see the point of the thread, quite frankly. If the question is anything other than the very definition of a no-brainer, then there's agenda here. So it's a game. Who's having the most fun, so far?

    Well, there are people like clownboy (what an apt name) who thinks that rape in marriage need not be charged as rape. There are people out there who think one spouse can't rape another, and then there are people who think if they can rape their spouse then that rape should not be a crime.

    And then there are people like Jerry who bangs on about proof as if that says anything about whether it should be a crime.

    How is a crime proved? It's proved by arguement before a jury trial to a point of no reasonable doubt, as all criminal trials are.

    I submit that whoever identifies extenuating circumstances here, is someone to be safely ignored.

Cutting off your partner without a damn good reason, whether done by the man or the woman, is a major breach of the marital relationship.
    Agreed. But if you wish to divorce her and put her at fault you're going to have a wait a year - that's NY law at any rate.

    Plenty of time for her to have an accident.
