Brett Jolly’s Daily Thought ( “The concept of rape between spouses”)

http://www.cnn.com/2015/07/28/politics/donald-trump-adviser-michael-cohen-rape/

Michael Cohen, top aide for Donald Trump, leveled a comment that he has since apologized for. He had originally said that “You cannot rape your spouse.” This all stemmed from an article in which Trump’s former wife claimed that she once felt violated by Trump once while they were married many years ago. Now Ivana Trump says the article is “without merit” and even Trump distanced himself from Cohen’s comments. This should be the end of the story, but for some reason this topic still sticks with me. For those who would like to check the article out for yourselves, you can find the link up top. In the Biblical sense, the woman is supposed to be a man’s property once they are married and the man is supposed to look toward his wife for “all of his sexual needs.” In fact, I talked to one woman (who I know was not submissive in ANY regard) and even she said that a wife is the “property of her husband,” and no wife should be able to tell her spouse “No.” I also talked to another woman who “disagrees with that concept entirely,” because to her “rape is still rape no matter what the circumstances are.” This debate is also compelled by a pastor’s sermon that I once heard a couple of years back, where he claimed that under “NO” circumstances “should a husband and wife ever divorce.” I am a firm believer that a woman should “always” be respected, and NO man should be able to “take his own liberties” with any woman against her will. This case also opens up yet “another can of worms” of other proportions when you think about it in depth. If, in case, a wife doe say “No” to her husband (and he honors her wishes) does that give him the “go-ahead” to actively seek sexual gratification from another woman “outside” the marriage? Since Biblically his wife is supposed to be the “sole” responsibility to his sexual needs does that mean that once the wife breaks that vow that he is now free to venture elsewhere? In this particular case Trump said the right thing and disagreed with his aide’s comments, and the aide ¬†himself has since apologized. Relationships between men and woman are vital for our own survival. While we admire our women for the beauty they posses we have to keep in mind that there is “much more than just good looks there.” Rape should be a crime under “ALL” circumstances against someone’s will. This story with Donald Trump should “technically’ be over and I end to treat it as such, but I am sure that the debate over “woman as property’ will stem on for years to come. I would love to know what “women” have to say about this. Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought today and as always i wish you the very best that life has to offer. Please make the best of it today:)
