After reading the headline I thought I must have made a mistake….nope. Although maybe not a common practice it’s not unheard of in Malaysia where the family of a victim would, to avoid the sullying of the family name, allow the rapist to marry the victim. Surely a win-win situation then? The rapist avoids 30 years in jail, the family avoid the scandal and the victim wins by getting married to a rapist monster.
Presumably, once married, the perpetrator is free to then treat his wife with the contempt he showed when he committed the crime,maybe by repeatedly raping her for the rest of their married life? How can this be right?
