(Moderate Muslims say:) Women can't refuse (sex with husband)

Women can't refuse

October 29, 2006

An Islamic group praised by the Howard Government as preaching moderation has advised its followers that a woman cannot refuse to have sex with her husband.

The advice was posted on the website of the Darulfatwa organisation, in response to questions posed by readers.

One asked: "Is it haram [forbidden] for a lady to say no if her male partner wants to make love with her?"

The Islamic scholars replied: "In this case she should not refrain from such a legitimate right of marriage, but she could Islamically request for a place of living from her husband."

Darulfatwa spokesman Mohammad Mehio said Islamic teaching was that a wife could not refuse sex unless she had a good excuse such as being ill, tired or depressed.

After The Sun-Herald questioned Mr Mehio about the answers on the website, he said they posted a "clarification".

The answer to the sex-in-marriage question was changed to: "In this case she has the right to refuse."

Wow, I hate give Islam credit for anything - but I certainly couldn't disagree with this edict!

That explains it! My spousal unit is a Muslim!

I would think that being married to one of those a-holes would cause a permanent case of depression.

In other words, Islamic women are about to have perpetual headaches, too?

That is also the conservative Christian belief in normal circumstances. And, it applies to both husbands and wives and not only includes sex, but affection.

I tend to believe that Muslims, at least in the culture of the MidEast, do not "make love". They obvious have sex (consensual or otherwise), but don't "make love"!

Yeah, but it's not so big a problem when you can pick from a group of 4 wives, and you have a good sized goat herd.....
