It seems a good era of women equality has started. After giving a breath of relief to Muslim women by banning Triple Talaq Supreme Court again made an another historic decision. In a landmark verdict, the Supreme Court (SC) on Wednesday says that sex with a wife who is under 18 years of age is to be considered rape and therefore a crime.

Supreme Court of India did not rule on ‘marital rape’, which is sexual intercourse forced upon a spouse no matter what their age. Earlier there was an exception in Section 375 rape law provisions that protected a man who had sexual intercourse with his wife even if she was under 18, which is the age of consent. Supreme Court says,

“Exception 2 in Section 375 of IPC (Indian Penal Code) granting protection to the husband is violative of the constitution and fundamental rights of the minor bride”. 

By this epic verdict, the court upholds the rights of 2.3 crore child brides in the country. As per the National Family Health Survey, 46 percent of women between the ages of 18-29 years were married before the age of 18.
