    Abstract:
    “Her friends used to tell her it wasn't rape if the man was your husband. She didn't say anything, but inside she seethed; she wanted to take a knife to their faces.” - F. H. Batacan. India is one of the few countries in the world where marital rape isn’t a crime, where the concept of consent for sex seems to be a blanket one, irrespective of mental state of mind or physical health, when one gets married.1 The objective of this paper is to shed light on a grave problem that impacts women in our society, specifically marital rape, consent in matrimonial relationships and why such heinous, vile offences are still not criminalised.
