I was browsing the internet of course, and it came upon me that in the state of Florida.. cohabitation is illegal. Is this true? Is this even enforced anymore? Does this mean two people cant rent or purchase a house without being married? Sorry, I am unfamiliar with this. Thanks guys =)

19th century laws though still on the books are usually only brought up in light hearted emails which will list many strange laws still on the books.

You would need to go way back to find any instance of someone being charged in violation of this law I am sure.

There are many strange ones.

Doors of all public doors in Florida must open outward.

Women can be fined for falling asleep under a hair dryer.

It is illegal to sing in a public place while attired in a swimsuit.

Men may not be seen publicly in any kind of strapless gown.

You may not fart in a public place after 6 P.M.

Having sexual relations with a porcupine is illegal.

Default Allstate

I know that I was turned down for car insurance with Allstate, because I owned a car with someone I wasn't married to......they refused to insure me although I was with them for 28 yrs. They told me I HAD to be married to the other owner, sooooo, went to State Farm no problem they didn't care about who the other owner was.

My husband and I bought our house together before we were married. We both are on the title and the loan. And no, I was never charged with breaking any laws.

ETA: Hubby and I also have a policy with Allstate and had it before we were married and we both were on the policy for each of our cars. I wonder if it varies by agent offices?

Yes, it is completely true! Just the other day, the police were going around my apartment complex rounding up the co-habitators. You don't wanna get caught!
