Marital Rape: Does Consent Matter or not ?


“Rape is rape irrespective of whether it is committed within or outside marriage”

Marriage in Indian society is considered to be a sacred institution; it is the very foundation of a stable family and a civilized society However it is not so true in real.  Marital rape is one such brutality. Marital Rape refers to a non-consensual act of violent perversion by a husband against the wife where she is physically and sexually abused.

The Indian Penal Code in Section 375 defines rape as “sexual intercourse with a woman against her will, without her consent, by coercion, misrepresentation or fraud at a time of when she has been intoxicated or duped, or is of unsound mental health and in any case if she is under 16 years of age with the exception of sexual intercourse by a man with his own wife, the wife not being under fifteen years of age”.

The Indian law acknowledges rape if it is committed by a stranger but at the same time if it is committed by a husband, no legal remedy is available for victims. Advancing well into the timeline, the most humiliating and debilitating fact is that marital rape is not an offence in India.

Marital rape at that time had blurred definitions but with the pressure of the second wave feminism, the fog upon the offence started to disperse. Consent plays a role on various levels in the case of marital rape, there can be different kinds of forceful sex upon a wife and the decree of consent would differ in such situations.

1. Forceful Sex: This is a type of marital rape in which the husband uses only enough force required to break her right to consent by using different methods such as Coercion, Application of Force.
2. Battering Rape: In this particular scenario the husband doesn’t only force himself upon the wife but also beats her during, before or after the rape.
3. Unusual Methods for sex: In this type the husband tortures the wife to derive his sexual pleasure and uses perverse methods to fulfill his fantasies which the wife may not have consented to, he may even record her in that vulnerable condition which is in every way a violation of her body.

It’s the will of a wife or any woman in that context to choose her own sexual preferences, person to couple with and also the time and moment when she desires to have intercourse. Being strong due to biological factors doesn’t give any man the power of god to have his way with whoever he wants. Marriage is a union between two people to be partners in a relationship, this means that both the entities are separate in nature and by law, consent matters when it comes to any sort of decision.

Complications faced in criminalizing Marital Rape

1. Lack of Knowledge: Many women don’t know that they actually have the right to prosecute their better half for such crimes, they don’t know that their consent actually matters before her husband can make even the most subtle sexual move.
2. No legal protection: A husband is given free pass by the legal statues in many countries where marital rape has not yet been termed as a crime, so as long as the protectors don’t take the step to protect the married women from getting violated, this monstrosity will never stop.
3. Cultural and social factors: The crown for the legality of marital rape is worn by the people who have set wrong standards about marriage and give their daughters away in marriage as a property of the husband. They never take the daughter seriously even when she tries to complain about her situation. Orthodox mindsets are giving rise to the uncivilized behavior one portrays as a man.
4. Purpose of arranged marriage: Marriages are still arranged for the purpose of procreation, or extending family due to which women don’t get the dignity. Also society gives different roles to man and woman, so as a wife a woman is expected to be submissive, docile and sacrifice her happiness for her family. So many women believe submitting to their husband’s will is their duty and in fulfilling all these duties rights of women are suppressed by society.

Due to these factors our community doesn’t take marital rape as a crime and often the cases go unreported.

Marital Rape: Violation of Fundamental Rights
The exception under Section 375 which permits a man to have sexual intercourse with his wife without her consent is the infringement of Article 14 & 21 of Constitution of India. Article 14 protects a person from discrimination. But the exemption under Section 375 of IPC, 1860 discriminates a wife when it comes to protection from rape. Article 21 provides the fundamental right to live with human dignity.
The Constitution under Art.51A (e) states that it is the fundamental duty of every citizen of India to denounce practices that are derogatory to the dignity of woman. Thus the legislative framework should make amendment under Section 375 of IPC and save married woman who face evil of forceful sexual intrusion at the hands of their husband.
The role of the state in a democratic egalitarian society is to protect and promote the rights of its citizens regardless of their sex or social status. The International instruments, the national laws as well as the constitutional laws bind the state to promote the rights of women as citizens regardless of the fact that they are married or not.18 Marital rape exemptions are unconstitutional. 

The fundamental rights guaranteed by the constitution are not strictly scrutinized neither these are correctly applied.


The following suggestions are made in the light of the above discussion:

1. Marital rape should be inculcated as an offence under the Indian Penal Code.
2. The punishment for marital rape should be the same as the one prescribed for rape under Section 376 of the Indian Penal Code.
3. It should not be a defense to the charge that the wife did not fight back and resisted forcefully or screamed and shouted.
4. The wife should have an option of getting a decree of divorce if the charge of marital rape is proved against her husband. Demand for divorce may be an option for the wife, but if the wife does not want to resort to divorce then the marriage should be allowed to continue since there would be valid consent,
5. Corresponding changes in the matrimonial laws should be made.
6. Counselling should be given to the victims of marital rape.
7. The rights of a married woman should be tantamount to the rights of an unmarried woman.


Legal Provisions regarding Freelance Agreements

Who is a Freelancer?

When we hear the term “Freelance”, we may interpret from the word ‘free’ that the person contributes his service free of cost and without any consideration. But this is certainly not the case, a freelancer refers to a person who is self- employed and is not devoted or committed to a particular employer at a particular term. But there are also many variations regarding the same. The term freelancer is often used as a synonym for the “Independent Contractor”.

There can be many areas, where the Freelancer can specialize which include the following: Content Writing, Music, Journalism, App Design, Web Design etc.

What clauses can be applied to the Freelance Agreements?

In India all the contracts and agreements are governed by the Indian Contract Act, 1872. The term “agreement” is defined under Section 2(e) as the promise or a set of promises which includes the consideration for each other. When this agreement becomes enforceable by law, it becomes a contract as per the Section 2(h).The clauses in this agreement is as follows:

  1. Basics

This usually includes the personal information such as

  • Name of the parties
  • Address of the parties
  • Name of the Organizations
  1. Agreement’s Scope

In this particular, the tasks of both the parties are mentioned, that is the consideration for the agreement. The term “consideration” is defined under the Section 2(d) of the ICA, 1872.

  1. The amount of payment and collection procedure

It is very essential for every agreement that the financial statements should be clearly stated. There should be no confusion regarding the consideration in the minds of the parties. It should be clearly stated that whether the freelancer is to be paid on hour basis, work basis, or in any other form.

The form of money that would be paid should also be decided prior to the agreement. For the protection of the companies, one thing must be noted to insert the Cancellation clause in the agreement, which states that if the freelancer backs out before the termination period and the task is accomplished, then the contract will stand as nullified and void.

  1. Term (Duration)

The agreement of license is for a particular term. So the agreement must specify the termination and commencement date.

  1. Termination

Every agreement must contain a termination clause that may vary as per the different agreements. It should specify the obligations that must be fulfilled by the licensee before the termination like making of payments etc.

  1. Deadlines

One thing should be made sure and included in the contract: the deadline that is the date for the submission of the task given.

  1. Jurisdiction and Dispute Resolution

Jurisdiction depends on the nationality of both the parties to an agreement as the parties can be Indian and can also be a Foreign Party. The jurisdiction varies from the courts of India to the courts of other countries.

For dispute resolution, the parties should apply their best of efforts to solve the dispute through co-operation and consultation.

  1. Timing of payment and If the fees is paid late

The above can be a clause in order to protect the interest of the Freelancers who in many circumstances can be exploited by the terms of work of the company. So the date of payment of fees should be exclusively mentioned along with the interest or fines that can be levied on the same for late payments

      9. Clause of Confidentiality

The information that is provided during the tenure of working as a freelancer should not be disclosed to any third party because of the sensitivity of that information.

  1. Privity

This clause brings out the relationship between freelancer and the employer company. It spells out that freelancer has been hired as an Independent Contractor. This implies that neither is responsible and liable for the acts of the other party.

In addition to the above, there are some Boiler-Plate Clauses, which refer to the standard clauses that are present in every Standard Form of Contract which are as follows:

  • Waiver- If the party by intention or by oversight fails to enforce its contractual rights, then it will not result in waiver of the breach of that right or remedy.
  • Severability-This clause states that if any part of the contract is found to be illegal and unenforceable, then it will not affect the remaining contract, the remainder contract will be applicable in all circumstances.
  • Notices- It mentions the handling, payments of notice that are to be made and received.
  • Modifications- Specifies the form of amendments of the agreements, whether oral or written.


Companies nowadays because of the changing trends are entering into freelance agreements as they contribute more to the growth by bringing fresh talent and skill rather than employing permanent employees. The Principle of Payment on Work basis has proved to be very much beneficial for the companies, both performance wise and economically which can be applied to the FREELANCERS!

FAQ – Domestic Violence Against Women Law in India

Frequently Asked Questions

(We do not take any responsibility of the answers, the are only opinions, please consult your lawyer !!)

1) What is Domestic Violence Bill ? 

Ans: Domestic Violence Bill is a Bill that provides all women in the domestic relationship, whether marriage or live-in, a right to seek legal action against her male partner if she perceives her male partner’s conduct is a form of domestic violence. If the complaint is lodged, a protection officer, predominantly a female, will pass restraining orders and give a second chance to reconcile. If the woman complains yet again, the male partner, irrespective of his family background and social status, will be convicted with one year imprisonment and fine of Rs. 20,000/- without any further enquiry.

2) What are the forms of Domestic Violence Bill?

Ans. The various forms of Domestic Violence are as follows:

(a) harms or injures or endangers the health, safety, life, limb or wellbeing, whether mental or physical, of the aggrieved person (woman) or tends to do so and includes causing physical abuse, sexual abuse, verbal and emotional abuse and economic abuse; or

(d) otherwise injures or causes harm, whether physical or mental, to the aggrieved person (woman).

3) Does the Domestic Violence Bill protect men?

A.The Domestic Violence Bill does not protect men.

4) In what ways this Bill is bad for men? 

A. Firstly, it does not provide any legal protection to men. Only women have the right to complain and seek legal action against their male partner. Even if the male partner is a victim of domestic violence, he has no right to complain. When the woman will complain of domestic violence, prima facie, the complaint will be treated as true and genuine. It will be the responsibility of the accused, the male partner, to prove his innocence. After the first complain, the Protection officer will issue a final warning after which the male partner could be imprisoned for one year if the woman decides to complain again. After the first complaint, the male partner will be under constant threat of getting convicted and will do anything the woman tells him to do.

Mental harassment is a relative term. Even if the male partner hasn’t harassed the woman, she has the right to accuse the male partner of domestic violence. Harassment is defined here from the woman’s point of view only. Just a mere petty argument within a relationship, which is an acceptable and general phenomenon, can be called harassment. If the male partner is cruelly nagged and decides to defend himself, the conduct of the male partner will be treated as a form of domestic violence, which will be a punishable crime. Women’s vicious nagging has drove thousands of men to commit suicide. In one year, 22,000 men are committing suicide only because of women’s atrocities, and the figures are increasing. A male partner not living on the woman’s terms, the male partner will be accused of committing a crime. Whatever the woman says, the male partner has to do it. If you don’t do what the woman says, you will be punished legally. Be henpecked or be handcuffed.

Economic abuse is a relative term. If a male partner refuses to pay exorbitant monetary demands of the woman, she can accuse him of domestic violence. Not meeting her extravagant monetary demands is a punishable crime. She can demand any amount of money, and refusing her, will invite legal action. Her extortion is legal after this Bill. When any property is held by the male partner and if the woman has any “interest” in the property, the woman has to right to demand what she wants and not giving her will invite imprisonment.

Verbal and emotional abuse is a relative term. A male partner if resists of getting brutally nagged by the woman, he will be accused of subjecting the woman to verbal and emotional abuse. A woman is free to abuse their male partner verbally and emotionally. But for the male partner to even defend himself, it is a crime. If a male partner decides to answer back, he is committing a crime. Lack of unconditional obedience from the male partner is a punishable crime.

If the male partner requests to the woman to make love when the woman is not in the mood, the male partner is committing a crime. If the woman demands sex from the male partner and he refused because he is not in the mood, the male partner is said to be sexually abusing the woman. The male partner must satisfy the woman sexually as and when she likes it. When the woman is not interested in having sex with him or forces him to have sex with her when he doesn’t want to, the male partner cannot complain of sexual abuse.

In every possible ways, the male partner can be legally controlled by the woman. Not allowing the woman to control the male partner, the male partner is committing a legal crime according to this Bill. The male partner will be arrested if he slightly deviates from the command given by the woman. Even if the male partner has ended the relationship with a woman in the past, the woman can still dig out the grave and complain against the male partner of domestic violence, which is usually done to take revenge. Since the protection officer will be a female, the male partner will be threatened of imprisonment if he does not do what his female partner tells him to do.

5) Only married men are in danger? 
A. No. Domestic Violence Bill extends to live-in relationships too. This also includes relationship between girlfriend and boyfriend..
