Spouse Sexual Assault in Texas – Sex Crimes News

Dallas, USA, 11/27/2021

Sex Crimes: In previous decades — and, indeed, throughout much of history — sexual assault against a spouse was not considered a crime. This may be difficult for most people to believe today, as societal attitudes toward marital rape and sexual assault have changed, but the laws against sexual assault carried out against a spouse didn’t change in the United States until quite recently.

In Texas, for example, it was impossible for one spouse to rape another until 1994. Up until that time, the sexual assault statute included an exemption for sexual assault against a spouse.

Today, however, Texas law makes no distinction between sexual assault against a non-spouse and sexual assault against a spouse. The Texas Association Against Sexual Assault also notes that “Texas has gender-neutral sexual assault laws.” This means that sexual assault is still sexual assault whether it takes place between a husband and wife, a married same-sex couple, or two strangers. Under Texas law, it is also a crime for a wife to sexually assault her husband.
