Double Standard

This article criticizes the Virginia common law provision which maintains that a woman cannot be raped by her husband and grants sexual consent by entering into marriage. It argues against the idea that the common law prevents wives from bringing vengeful, unfounded charges of rape against their husbands, and calls for the passing of a marital rape law.
