Even in the today scenario to find out the answer of this question is really a typical task India is one of 36 countries that still have not criminalized marital rape, unlike the other 150 countries. Approximately 20-30% of married women are raped by their husband. Approx. 1/3rd of women reported having unwanted sex with their partner. Further, women who are victims of spousal sexual abuse often suffer from other types of IPV as well; physical, emotional, and psychological, thus bearing a particularly potent burden of exposure and psychiatric risk.
