The Quran gives husbands supreme authority over a woman.
Muhammad said: "If a husband calls his wife to his bed [i.e. to have sexual relation] and she refuses and causes him to sleep in anger, the angels will curse her till morning" (Bukhari 4.54.460). He also said: "By him in Whose Hand lies my life, a woman can not carry out the right of her Lord, till she carries out the right of her husband. And if he asks her to surrender herself [to him for sexual intercourse] she should not refuse him even if she is on a camel's saddle" (Ibn Majah 1854).
In New Jersey a Muslim man raped his wife several times stating “You are my wife, I can do anything to you. The woman, she should submit and do anything I ask her to do.”
A judge upheld this stating that this was the husband's religious right! When does Sharia law have any power on American soil?
Good question! America needs to take a long hard look at whats happening in Europe and wake up.

It should be noted that the ruling revolves around a restraining order, not the rape itself or the subsequent divorce. Still, I think that judge has a screw loose.
