Is Allowing A Rape Victim To Marry Her Rapist In Her Interest

Many people opine that a rape victim should marry her rapist to wash off the slur of rape from her, and then she will live her life with respect. She should be given full freedom if she wants to marry the rapist and can give birth to the child impregnated by her sexual assault.

Seems like this opinion gives due respect to a woman's wish, and her choice will reign supreme, but beneath this exterior, there lurks a grim reality. It conjures up a possibility that marriage will be forced on the victim by her family to wash off the aspersion

of rape from her, as a raped girl is like a leftover food, no body wants to have it. Chances are wafer- thin that a woman will willingly marry a person with a beastly instinct, who has outraged her modesty that is a flagrant act of turpitude and has an utter disregard for a woman's dignity.

 For every woman, her husband is a cult figure. How can she worship a man who is only her bete-noire (the thing she hates most)? How can she shell out her whole life with a slur that she is a wife of a rapist? Can a perpetrator of rape be expected of fidelity? If a victim ties the knot with a rapist, she will always tremble under an umbrella of fear and insecurity, because of his lascivious nature. This opinion that the woman should marry her rapist, visualizes woman as an object of pity .It is


premised on a flawed logic that a woman's life can trundle on a new track after marrying the person who had her all dreams of a happy married life crashing down, because of his libido. A woman's life will become a living hell if she marries the rapist ,bucking under the pressure of her family.

A rapist can also use marriage as a tool to dodge any punishment. This opinion is also nebulous about what will happen if after marriage if the perpetrator of rape divorces his wife after eschewing the punishment he deserves? what will be the future of that child, the fruit of a fundamental violation of a woman's body? And if the rapist does not throw his wife on the scrap heap, and the child grows up to know that his or her father is a rapist ,will that grown up child be able to give the respect a child gives to a father? He or she will further develop odium for that person.

   Rape is not a peccadillo which can be forgiven on any ground. The rapist's sin can not be obliterated by marrying the victim. The rapist must be given the maximum possible punishment. The vanguards of this opinion that the victim should marry her rapist should know that it can act as an emollient for the rapist, leading to escalation in the cases of rape.
