Conjugal rights or marital rape: That is the question
By Cliff Chiduku
ONE of the most important features of a marriage are the unlimited conjugal rights that each of the parties to the union enjoy. Conjugal rights may be defined as the rights that a husband or wife is entitled to in a marriage — the right to be intimate with his or her spouse. It is, however, not unusual to find a spouse being denied the right for various reasons. The denial of conjugal rights by either party may create tension between couples. This can be the basis for divorce.
