One of the law's most controversial articles legislates the frequency of sexual relations between Shiite husbands and wives. Article 132 says the husband has a right to sex every fourth night unless the wife is ill.
But the United Nations Development Fund for Women has said the law "legalizes the rape of a wife by her husband."

Isn't it sad when sexual relations within marriage come down to this ... legalism in the bedroom!
If one is going to go so far as to be legalistic and define rights "to sex every fourth night unless the wife is ill", next will be the need to define what qualifies as sex (length of time, type of activity, the quality, etc., etc., etc.) ... And besides, where does God proclaim "every fourth night" as a right ... or only every fourth night as a right?
How much better the ideal set forth in the Scripture of mutual and sacrificial love between a husband and wife where "The wife's body does not belong to her alone but also to her husband. In the same way, the husband's body does not belong to him alone but also to his wife." (1 Cor 7:14)
Legalistic religion begets legalistic needs and restraints, but grace based relations and truth (as found in Christianity) leads to freedom and mutual self-offering.
