    That kind of rape.

    Is there such a thing as spousal rape?

    Does no mean no in a marriage?

    Or is DICK Black's view reasonable and valid? [/SIZE]
    No means no, but if the marriage is bad enough that either doesn't want to have sex, and the other still does, it would be time for either some serious counseling to try and resolve the issues causing the problem, or they should part and go their separate ways.

    Would seem so. Though NY's divorce laws were designed to make a divorce very difficult to get so other states probably aren't as bad.
    At one point it got so bad that couples that wanted to divorce lied in court - claimed no sex in a year or admitting adultery when in reality they didn't - to get them.

    Yeah, I've seen that sort of thing happen.

    If a man has to rape his wife to get sex, then he must really suck.

    I guess that could be the case sometimes.

    I actually suspect it's the case more than most of us realize. I've had more than one man friend who has told me pretty personal stuff about their marriages. I'm frankly shocked at how many women decide they don't like sex anymore, once they are married. It's really kind of sad.
