Cohabitation ban repealed

-A A +A
By Landmark News Service

RICHMOND — Unmarried couples living together may soon be doing so legally under a measure that passed the General Assembly.
The House voted 62-25 in favor of repealing the law making it illegal for unmarried couples to live together. Virginia code says doing so is punishable by a $500 fine for a first offense and up to a year in jail for subsequent infractions.
The U.S. Supreme Court has deemed the law unconstitutional, and prosecutors haven’t used it for years, said Del. Scott Surovell, a Fairfax County Democrat.
