We would have the court filled up and leave notime to take of major offences. It would be to darn costly.
NC Also has a law against it
§ 14‑184. Fornication and adultery.
If any man and woman, not being married to each other, shall lewdly and lasciviously associate, bed and cohabit together, they shall be guilty of a Class 2 misdemeanor: Provided, that the admissions or confessions of one shall not be received in evidence against the other. (1805, c. 684, P.R.; R.C., c. 34, s. 45; Code, s. 1041; Rev., s. 3350; C.S., s. 4343; 1969, c. 1224, s. 9; 1993, c. 539, s. 119; 1994, Ex. Sess., c. 24, s. 14(c).)
From the ashes.
Those laws should be taken off the books for good measure. I don't see how this is any of the government's business.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
