BAHRAIN's top legal authority has recommended that husbands who force their wives to have sex should not be prosecuted.
It has also suggested husbands and guardians who "reasonably" discipline their wives and daughters should be above the law.
The Supreme Judicial Council made the recommendations to ensure new legislation on domestic disputes does not contradict Sharia (Islamic) principles.
However, the recommendations have yet to be voted on by the Shura Council.
