What does "who is not his spouse" have to do with anything?

I'm not sure. I think he would be charged with domestic battery if she was his girlfriend/spouse, no?

Right, it's a legal technicality. It has to be clearly defined per the specific charge.

So a man could sexually assault his wife and have the opportunity to plead down to disorderly conduct? Awesome. Ohio is just so progressive.
