Massachusetts' sexual assault laws

Setting: Modern day.

Question: Does the state of Massachusetts recognise rape between a husband and wife? Meaning; if a husband, who has been abusing his wife, but never been reported/arrested for it, rapes his wife, would the court/law recognise it as rape, or would it be caught in the marriage loophole? (Meaning, the fact that they are married, and living in the same house, would mean implied consent.)

I'm looking through Google, and will continue to do so, but it's all rather confusing, and legalese.
