So much for the "Live Free Or Die" state...

Seven months after the state approved gay marriage, lawmakers will consider easing government further from the bedroom with a bill to repeal the law.

"We shouldn't be regulating people's sex lives and their love lives," state Rep. Timothy Horrigan said. "This is one area the state government should stay out of people's bedrooms."

A part of me feels the law should stay, but I know that's not right .

Unfortunately, those old, out-of-date laws can still be used to arrest and convict the citizens of the state, and the states are often not too keen on getting rid of certain laws, especially if there's a moral agenda behind them. As mentioned on another thread, it took the U.S. Supreme Court to force Texas to get rid of its law against sodomy.

Depends on how much you want the government to control people. I prefer the government stay away from regulating intimate relationships.

Yes, so do I. I just think the law is good for personal reasons, so I have bias.

Still, it probably wasn't much of a deterrent.

This wouldn't be such a big issue if polygamy were legal.

It seems that someone famous get's caught every week [athletes\ governors\ film producers\ senators\ preachers - all the so-called "role" models]. Why promote something that no one can do?

This makes me like NH even more. Adultery is so destructive for families and society as a whole that I would prefer that it was illegal and harshly punished.
