Yes, it is still considered rape and you can legally press charges.  Anytime someone forces sex when you have said no and told them to stop, it is considered rape.  Doesn't matter if you're married, dating, or otherwise.

Yes, it's rape if you don't wilfully consent. Being pressured into consenting is still rape.

Yes, it's rape, however if a women shoots dead her abusive husband, the prosecutor always questions why the women did not leave and allow herself to continually be in the situation that would require such use of force.

You have a responsibility to yourself to keep yourself out of harms way. Unfortunately you are attached to a rapist. Why? Why in God's name would you do that to yourself. While your bf may be a misogynist (hater of women) and had been taught to disrespect women, what you have to do is deal with your own self. Why are you involving yourself with someone who is so crude? Why are you not concentrating on an education primarily before hooking up with some useless distraction? What happened to you that has caused you to stay in such a detrimentally mentally unhealthy relationship?

You must always look at the other guy, but in the same vein you must also learn to read yourself and how you may be your own worst enemy.

Nighthawk, it would be good for you to read up on abuse cycles and how they occur. Women are often groomed over time till they are isolated from friends and family and their self worth has been reduced to nothing. This makes it incredibly hard to leave an abusive partner. Please also keep in mind that there is usually some part of the relationship that IS working in some way. Sometimes this is just the honeymoon period after an act of violence or rape. The abuser is loving, promises change and perhaps even does change for a short time. We don't know that this woman is not trying to focus on school or a career. Abusive relationships don't discriminate. The best way to help an abuse survivor is to tell them they are a person of worth who doesn't deserve this treatment and provide them with resources and encouragement to leave.

You are a bit confusing. You remain with him and he forces himself on you. But you know he is going to force himself on you and you stay with him expecting it. This is a very odd sort of rape. It could be mistaken for permission.

This is a bad partnership. Don't you think it would be best to leave him?.
