The State of Virginia might just be well on its way to making honest men and women out of all of us. There is legislation, introduced by Sen. Adam Ebbin, to repeal the ban on unmarried couples living together. Sen. Ebbin is the only openly gay legislator in Virginia. I don’t believe, however, it is illegal for same sex couples to live together. If that is the case, a whole lot of colleges are breaking the antiquated Virginia law when assigning student housing. But I digress…..
RICHMOND — A Senate panel on Monday unanimously advanced a bill to repeal an old law that makes it illegal for unmarried couples to live together in Virginia.
It is a misdemeanor in the state, under a law dating to the late 19th century, for “any persons, not married to each other, [to] lewdly and lasciviously associate and cohabit together.”
