Women and especially mothers sacrifice a lot for their family and their honour..but a line needs to be drawn..she should not allow herself to be treated like that way.. It is a revolution but more and more women need to come out and report it..that way society will change..it is a slow process but there might come a time when women are truly treated with respect and equality..this will stop when women get financially independent and strong willed and get support of her family. Our patriarchal society is also a reason for crimes against women..

The court's line of argument is..that recognizing marital rape has practical problems..since in a married relationship u r expected to be having sex...

That's what makes me sceptical about marital rape. How is it supposed to be proven? If there was physical abuse then it is easier to determine but then that can be dealt with relevant laws pertaining to physical abuse. Whereas coercion without being physically abusive, how is that supposed to be proven? Won't it become her word vs his word? And can that at all be considered rape?

If she resisted and the sex was forced, there is usually some physical evidence supporting forced sex like tearing, bruising. 

In the case that Peridot. posted the charge was sodomy. So I think the unnatural sex acts IPC 377 ruled in her favor. That still leaves me skeptical of how courts will treat other instances of marital rape.

Just because you are married does not give your spouse the right to attack whenever he or she wants. Rape is rape if there was not consent.
