If one’s husband has a sexually transmitted disease, does his wife have to answer his sexual needs when he demands it?
My husband has contracted an STD from another woman. The illness is contagious. If my husband demands to sleep with me, is it obligatory for me to consent in this situation? What if he were to have a deadly disease such as AIDS?
The office of Ayatullah Hadavi Tehrani:
If the disease is dangerous and can be transmitted through intercourse, not only will compliance not be obligatory, but will also be impermissible.
