Is It Rape When It’s Your Husband??

I was married at 16 to a man that was not a good guy. Is it still rape when it comes to your husband??

I had two small children aged about 2 & 3 at the time. I was about 19. He became very mentally ill, crazy if he did not have any marijuana to smoke. I remember just walking on eggshells. I am 50 yrs old now and still have the memories of being de-graded. I pray that my children do not remember some events. I’d do my best to tell them to stay in their room so they would not see him beat and abuse me sexually.

One time he stuck a butcher knife into the coffee table and had sex with me on the sofa while my children were there. Other times he’d keep me in the bedroom, unclothed and made to stand in a corner and he’d hit me.

We had been separated previously and I had slept with someone else and this was his way of punishing me.

Yes, I’ve told some people about this, and my Mother, but have never received any professional sort of counseling for this.

Is this rape ?? It’s not like I fought back, I was too afraid for my life. Like in the film, you are just body at that time and yes, your soul leaves you.

Sincerely, Elise
