    That is where I was going too... unless it is a true rape wtih her actively resisting, or soemthing.

    Before 1993 it was just 'rape', which has been illegal for centuries.

    Withholding Affection is the same as abandonment and is legal cause for an at fault divorce.

    I didn't ask for reasons for divorce. There are many... I asked where in the marriage contract does it state that you have to have sex with your spouse. That is the first step. If you can't show that then you can't make any valid claim that raping your spouse is not illegal.

    ...and your link doesn't even talk about withholding affection. It talks about "No Fault Divorce" meaning that you don't even need a reason to get a divorce anymore.

    All contracts are subject to civil and tort law even if they don't list said laws in the contract itself.

    Withholding Affection is NOT the same as withholding sex. Sex is not the same as giving affection.

    Withholding Affection = lack of interest in things that are important to you, lack of concern for your well-being, being divisive against your friends and freedoms in life, etc. The fundamental elements needed to have a well rounded relationship on an emotional level with the intent of being hurtful.

    You can have sex and still be in a relationship where Affection is being withheld. Often, women who are in an emotionally abusive relationship DO have sex - and in that type of environment it's considered to be transactional, not affectionate.

    Please understand that.

    Where in the marriage contract did it say you weren't allowed to rape your wife?

    If your Love Language is physical touch, then yes withholding sex is withholding affection.

    But that's not the important thing. Alienation of Affection is a charge you bring against a 3rd party, not your spouse.

    And how does that imply that sex is mandatory and that if sex is not given consensually it can be taken by force, exactly?

    Where in the marriage contract did it say you weren't allowed to rape your wife?
    It doesn't need to any more than it doesn't say anywhere in the marriage contract did it say you weren't allowed to murder your wife.

    Now, why is that Jerry?

    The end of my marriage was 100% withholding affection... but we still had sex.
