A man and women get married, have children and are going through life in a "normal" manner. They've been married for several years and the excitement has worn off and the sex is more drab than daring. Lately even the drab has been rare. They don't have a bad marriage, there aren't any "problems" or anything drastic, just infrequent and unsatisfying sex.
One Friday morning Spouse A tells Spouse B that they will be taking the children to their mothers for the weekend. Spouse A orders Spouse B to not go to O'Malley's Pub for Happy Hour like normal because they have dinner reservations. Spouse B dearly loves going to O'Malley's on Friday, but grunts in response.
Latter that day Spouse B takes off work at noon with the rest of the people in the office. The boss is having a retirement party for one of the people in accounting. They all go out to a local cocktail lounge for lunch and drinks. Spouse B has several drinks and not feeling it would be a good idea to drive takes a cab home.
Spouse A comes to the door wearing nothing but a smile and proceeds to remove Spouse B's clothing and forcefully copulates with Spouse B on the couch. Spouse A then fixes more alcoholic beverages and practically forces them down Spouse B's throat. This drunken orgy continues over the weekend. Saturday morning Spouse B wakes up to find their arms handcuffed to the bed and Spouse A on top doing things of a sexually explicit nature.
This process continues until Sunday when they have to sober up and retrieve the kids from grandma's.
- Never at any point did Spouse B give written or verbal consent to Spouse A to engage in sex
- Spouse B was intoxicated and therefor unable to consent
- Saturday morning Spouse B was unconscious when sex began therefor unable to grant consent
- Spouse A never requested consent
- Spouse A was a "selfish" lover and did not seek to pleasure Spouse B
If not rape, some lessor form of sexual assault?
Does it matter if Spouse A is a women?
Go ahead and post an opinion in the comments. I'm going to try to get out a follow up post latter in the week.
