PGA v The Queen [2012] HCA 21 (30 May 2012)

I refer you to the judgment summary concerning the adoption of the common law, including the statement by Sir Matthew Hale in 1736, that a husband could not be guilty of raping his wife because, by marriage, she gave her irrevocable consent to intercourse.

Brisbane Barrister – David Cormack
