Thais could face up to 20 years in jail for raping their spouses under a new law passed by the National Legislative Assembly.  The nation’s first marital rape bill now provides equal protection for men and women.  The previous law defined a rapist as a person who rapes a woman who is not his wife, meaning a man could assault his wife with impunity.  The bill also gives a broader definition of rape to cover female offenders and homosexual rapists.  Thailand has now joined more than 20 countries around the world with similar laws.
