Well, the quote identifies the lord's name with "Jesus Christ" (which is a problem on it's own), so we're in an christian context and so we should at least take the most basic christian statements into account.

The whole point of the sermon on the mount is basically: You should not be the worse asshole you can be without breaking the law - don't be an asshole at all.
So when Jesus says, that you should not even look at a woman with lustful intent, i think it's safe to say, that raping her is definitely not okay.

And this is not a statement about damaging another mans property (maybe you read the tenth commitment that way, we're discussing the sixth), but okay that doesn't answer the question if rape in marriage is okay.

Well, you have statements like that:
Husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. (eph5.28)
You may even quote something like this:
For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. (1. kor 7.4)

So, yeah, maybe you won't find "Don't rape your wife, fucktard!" but it's pretty clear that marriage shouldn't be shitty for anyone involved And rape is very shitty.
