Anyone who doesn't believe in "marital rape" can tell it to my girlfriend.

Well, they could, but people who know me know that she was killed in a rollover accident almost one year ago, on 8/15/14.

But the Donald / Ivana trump story made me think of her, especially when it came to the Donald's attorney denying that "marital rape" even exists. I posted his comments on DU, you can search for them if you'd like...I'm not going to repost them here, and no, I don't have the link handy. It's easy enough to find if you think you need to see it.

My girlfriend...who I miss every day of my life without fail...was married to a big guy, just under 300 pounds, with drug and alcohol issues as well as abuse issues. It's hard to tell if the things he said to her were worse than the things he did to her, and that included slamming her up against the wall on multiple occasions. This guy scarred her for life, I loved her unconditionally but it was never enough to make the scars go away. And the worst part of all, like many abuse victims, is that she held on to part of the blame for the things he did to her.

What she told me...and I have no reason to doubt her...is that on the night her twins were conceived, he held her down and had forced intercourse with her. Nine months later, twin daughters.

So for the people in the world who think that a piece of paper and a ring entitles you to do what you want, when you want, to the person you are supposed to "love honor, and cherish," this post isn't going to convince them, and I have no interest in attempting to do so anyway.

My girlfriend's daughters were everything to her, she as a fierce mama lion. They are 14 years old now and have turned out to be two of the finest, most polite, most gifted young ladies you'd ever want to meet. My girlfriend did the right thing, even though the circumstances that brought her daughters into the world were brutal, cruel, and unconscionable.

"Marital rape" is real. Like it or not.

Thanks for listening.

1. that sad part is that it used to

and not all that long ago. I am over a decade out of getting Social Security but in my adult lifetime it was legally impossible to rape your wife in more than one state. I think it was legally impossible in nearly all of them when I was a toddler.
