A judge left millions irked after he spoke in court about the “fundamental human right” of every man to have intercourse with his wife.
It's absolutely shocking to us that certain people still believe in the saying, 'a man’s wife is their property' because let's be honest, we are not living in the 1800s anymore. However, in a shocking turn of events, massive outrage has been bubbling up among people after a judge talked in court about the "fundamental human right" of a man to have intercourse with his significant other. As reported by Guardian.
The rather shocking comment was made by Mr. Justice Hayden, who had been recently approached to consider imposing a court order keeping a man from having intercourse with his significant other of 20 years since she may no longer have the ability to give her assent.
The case had been brought to the court of protection - which considers situations where individuals do not have the psychological ability to settle on their own choices - by attorneys for a council's social administrations after the state of the lady, who has learning difficulties, started to fall apart.
Social administration authorities accept there is proof that she no longer has the ability to settle on choices about whether she needs to engage in physical relations and hence can't openly give her assent. Legal counselors have recommended that a judge may need to ban the spouse from proceeding to engage in physical relations with his better half so as to guarantee that the lady isn't assaulted.
Hayden considered the issue at a fundamental court of protection hearing in London on Monday, in which he was informed that the man had offered to give an undertaking not to have intercourse with his significant other. Be that as it may, the judge said he needed to inspect the proof in detail – and hear contentions from legal counselors speaking to the lady, the man, and the council included – before settling on any choices.
Furthermore, the judge said the man may be placed in a circumstance where he could confront jail on the off chance that he breached an order, or an undertaking, not to have intercourse with his better half. He additionally proposed that such a request would be hard to police.
"I cannot think of any more obviously fundamental human right than the right of a man to have intercourse with his wife – and the right of the state to monitor that," he said. "I think he is entitled to have it properly argued," Some portion of that remark was seized on by the Labor MP for Bristol West, Thangam Debbonaire, who shared his views on Twitter.
She tweeted, "This legitimizes misogyny and woman-hatred. A judge stating ‘I cannot think of any more obviously fundamental human right than the right of a man to have intercourse with his wife’. No man in the UK has such a legal right to insist on intercourse. No consent = assault." Hayden has requested that the couple included can't be identified. A full hearing is expected in the coming months.
