There are strange laws left and right in the United States. In Florida, for example, it’s illegal to break more than three dishes in one day. And in Alaska, it’s illegal to look at a moose from an airplane. But these strange laws don’t only focus on your behavior—there are also some that target marriage.
Check out these strange marriage laws in the United States. Who knows? Maybe your marriage is illegal.
In South Carolina, if a man is found to have done this, it counts on his record as a misdemeanor. If you’re under 16, though, you should be fine. Go ahead and seduce away!
In Delaware, a marriage can be annulled if it was done as a jest or to fulfill a dare. While this may seem strange, it makes you wonder why exactly it’s a law.
In Truro, Massachusetts, a man has to prove his manliness before marrying by shooting either six blackbirds or three crows. It would be a bummer in this town if the gun control laws were stricter—no one would be able to get married!
We’ve all heard of those couples that get remarried to each other after a divorce. In Kentucky, however, this is only legal the first three times. If you attempt to remarry the same person a fourth time, it is illegal.
At least not on Sundays in Hartford, Connecticut. So if you’re planning a romantic date night in the city, keep a little space between you just to make sure you don’t get in trouble.
