Police: Husband Hired Wife's Rapist off Craigslist for Sexual Fantasy

Jennifer Wilson, program director for Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network's National Sexual Assault Hotline told ABCNews.com that she had never heard of a case where a husband hired someone to rape his wife.

Wilson said consent means the difference between fantasy and crime.

"Getting married does not mean you are consenting to any type of sex for the rest of your life," she said.

Being raped by a spouse or intimate partner, she said, can have serious psychological effects for a woman who enterered marriage with feelings of love and trust.

"When that trust is violated, I think that has some very serious implications," she said.

Women who are raped by their spouses tend to have severe feelings of isolation and depression and tend to be less likely to get help, simply based on their relationship with the attacker.
