The present paper studies the relationship between married women sexual identity and their attitudes towards matrimonial rights. The propositions put forth by liberal feminism on women legal inequalities and women process of socialization—whereby they acquire socially-established gender stereotypes dominating family affairs, occupation, and education—form the theoretical framework of this study. Moreover, sexual identity was studied based on Richards Jenkins' and Anthony Giddens’ theories. Attitudes towards matrimonial rights have been studied with regard to three facets of awareness, emotion, and behavior. The research methodology was a survey-based one and questionnaires were completed by interview technique. Regression and Pearson correlation coefficient were used for statistical analysis and data correlation. The results show that within the process of identity modernization, we are witnessing growing increase in legal awareness, dissatisfaction with laws, and inclinations for showing resistance against existing laws.
