are we all insane? I mean honestly...via ded space

Debora Hobbs is challenging North Carolina's law against cohabitation. Hobbs was told by her supervisor to either resign her job as a sheriff's department dispatcher or marry her live-in partner. She resigned, and on Monday, the ACLU filed a suit on her behalf that challenges North Carolina's rarely enforced law that prohibits unrelated persons of different genders from living together.

Woman Sues Over N.C. Anti-Cohabitation Law
The legal arm of the American Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina filed the lawsuit Monday on her behalf.

The lawsuit seeks to abolish the nearly 200-year-old -- and rarely enforced -- law that prohibits unmarried, unrelated adults of the opposite sex from living together. North Carolina is one of seven states with such a law.

Convicted offenders face a fine and up to 60 days in jail.
