If you think you have seen and heard it all, then have a look at some of these laws. Some of these exist even today.
Have you heard of proxy weddings? It is a marriage that takes place without the presence of either the groom or the bride; somebody else stands in for one of them. But have you heard of a wedding where there are double proxies? Yes, it happens only in Montana where it is not necessary for both the groom and the bride to be present for their wedding to take place. Well, only if you are in the armed forces. And what about the honeymoon? Do the proxies go for that too? No idea!
If you are a man and live in a state like Mississippi then you have to be brave enough to hunt down and kill either three cows or six blackbirds. Don’t chicken out of this one, because it could cost you your wife.
Do you live in Vermont? If so, you would need written permission from your husband if you want to wear false dentures. Well, how about keeping a stiff upper lip for that?
Have you thought of getting married just for fun of it, where you are not serious about a commitment? Well, if you are living in Delaware you can easily do that and later annul the marriage.
If you live in Utah and madly in love with your cousin, then you will have to wait till you are both 65. No marriage on the cards till then.
If you have the habit of consulting the fortune-seeker for everything in your life, then be ready for a shock. You cannot do that for your marriage if you are in Louisiana. Foreseeing the future of your marriage is illegal. But then marriage is universally predictable, right?
People will say you are a bad decision maker and that you cannot make up your mind about men if you keep marrying the same man several times. In Kentucy, however, you cannot marry the same man more than 3 times. It is time you contemplated on your views about men in general and go for the right life partner.
If you are in Massachusetts and rent a room for the night, then keep your clothes on when you sleep. If you and your partner sleep nude, it is illegal. Or if you still want to sleep in the nude, then plug the keyhole. No sense in taking a chance.
Don’t fool around with your girl by staging a proposal if you are in South Carolina. If you don’t mean it you could land in jail. Well, only if you are over 16 years of age. So when you propose, be sober and really mean it. If not, you are in the hot seat.
If you hate your mother-in-law and live in Wichita, Kansas, then you are stuck with her. That is no grounds for divorce. So choose your mother-in-law carefully and wisely.
A romantic Sunday with your wife would be really lovely, but don’t kiss her in public, especially if you are in Hartford, Connecticut. It is considered the Lord’s Day and it is illegal for a man to kiss his wife. Well, they didn’t say anything about girlfriends.
