Marriage is a sacrosanct bond that brings two individuals and their families together. Be that as it may, on the off chance that the marriage did not depend on common assent or, on the other hand, assuming one or both players are miserable, it can turn into a cause for issues. Since the beginning of time, our general public has leaned towards a man-centric framework, which has prompted men to show feelings of strength. All over the planet, the rule of law plays a critical role in managing human behavior and setting guidelines for leadership. Conjugal assault is perhaps the most incredibly abhorrent demonstration that exists in India. Conjugal assault is no less serious than the offence of assault; rather, it is the type of assault. It is one of the greatest dangers to orientation equity in India. Indian culture has never thought of conjugal assault as an issue. It is seldom gone against by anybody in Indian culture for different reasons. The disposition of the Indian governing body is the same in this manner. The Indian Assembly has been given the gravest undertaking of sanctioning regulations for the wellbeing, security, and improvement of the country by the Indian Constitution. However, the lawmaking body isn't intrigued by any means with regards to eliminating the evil of marital rape from the country. The Indian legal executive gives a beam of trust in such a manner, yet its hands are bound as the drafting of regulations is the privilege of the council and not the legal executive. There are no viable regulations in India, taking everything into account. Whatever regulations are there in India, they are not adequate to contain something as detestable as conjugal assault. There is need to carry areas of strength to stare death in the face of marital rape in India. This research paper centers around the development of ladies' privileges, especially the impacts of Marital Rape and how it abuses the Constitution of India.
