Unnatural sex with wife not rape; consent immaterial: Madhya Pradesh High Court

Single-judge Justice Gurpal Singh Ahluwalia said that a husband engaging in anal sex with his wife will not amount to rape even if it is non-consensual as long as the wife was not below 15 years of age.

The Madhya Pradesh High Court recently ruled that a man engaging in unnatural sex with one's wife is not rape since marital rape is not recognized as an offence under Indian Penal Code, and consent becomes immaterial in such cases.
