by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles – Is My Husband Raping Me?
Trigger warning for rape culture justifications and excusing sexual abuse
Editor’s note: If you have to actually ask that question then usually the answer is yes. Gross disgusting everything is always about sex Mr. Biblical Gender Roles is answering a long comment some poor woman who’s husband has frequent, painful and unwanted sex with her against her will. Basically the rest of his long, l-o-n-g answer to this woman is that her husband is within his rights to take sex from her no matter what the circumstances, including him blaming women for having ideas from ‘Satan’ that men have to earn their sexy fun times. Sick to my stomach.
Aside from his physically harming her by forcing himself upon her no he is NOT abusing his wife from a Biblical perspective. Even if he did physically force himself upon her – it is IMPOSSIBLE Biblically speaking for a man to rape his wife. Abuse? Yes. Rape? No. For a larger discussion of the Biblical impossibility of marital rape I refer you again to my post “Is a husband selfish for having sex with his wife when she is not in the mood”.
If he convinces her to yield her body to him, then no sin has been committed on his part. But it is very possible that even if she yields to him – there is still sin on her part. If she acts disgusted by him and acts like he has no right to have sex with her – then the sin lies squarely in her court. She needs to eliminate the terms “rape” and “molester” from her vocabulary regarding her husband’s sexual advances toward her.
