Man charged for raping wife on wedding night

   May 2, 12:29 pm

London, May 2 (ANI): A woman in Britain has accused her husband of raping her during their wedding night, while she was drunk and declined to have sex.

The bride, who is in her 20s, told Exeter Crown Court that she was so drunk after she returned home from a boozy evening following her wedding that she told her husband she did not want to have sex.

However, her husband ignored her pleas and forced her against her will, Exeter Crown Court was told.

He is also charged with raping her another four times during their two year marriage and she finally went to the police after being attacked twice in two days.

The husband has denied the five rape charges including one after their wedding party.

Richard Crabb, prosecuting says the husband's attitude to his wife changed after the wedding and he developed a sense of entitlement, telling her "You're my wife, it's allowed" when she complained about his attacks.

The husband is also accused of raping her when she was heavily pregnant, while she was still in stitches after the baby's Caesarean birth, and on two later occasions.

The wife denied inventing the allegations as a way of getting her husband out of her life and getting him into trouble.

"I was scared of him. I knew what a temper he has got. I was afraid he would take my babies. They are my life," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.

"I was petrified. I know it sounds messed up but it is how it was.

"I had loved him to bits but I did not want to live like that any more," she said. (ANI)
