Marital rape is something that is currently being widely discussed in Indonesia. The existing dialectical debate is due to the Draft Criminal Code (RKUHP) and the Sexual Violence Eradication (RUU PKS) which lists the matter. Rape in marriage can be seen in terms of western law and Islamic law. This is triggered by the existence of feminists who reject western law, that the husband can have sexual relations with his wife with the threat of violence or without the will and consent from the wife. This rejection is based on the law, which initially stated that in a husband and wife relationship there is no such thing as rape. In Islamic law, marriage ties will give rights and obligations to husband and wife to be able to have sexual relations with certain manners. Therefore, this paper will discuss the comparison of the views of western law and Islamic law of rape in marriage. This paper will also provide advice on the regulation of rape in marriage in Indonesia.
