The paper deals with spousal rape, an act of violence with a high degree of social danger and the elements by which the perception of marital rape is determined by the social and cultural context, by the religious affiliation, by local traditions as well as by society’s mentality. The aim of the approach was to highlight the correlation between spousal rape and patterns of conduct induced by this phenomenon on the family level, resulting in consequences that affect the sexual freedom of the person, and restrict a person’s right to protection of psychic and mental health. The techniques used in the research applied were the counselling and semi-structured interview, applied between September and December 2020, to a number of 13 women who experienced incidents of rape by their partner. Thus, we can consider that this particularly serious phenomenon induces major damage to the personality of the victim, who may suffer from depressive disorder, sex life troubles, sleep deprivation, addictive disorders and eating disorder.
