No Couples Living Together Before Marriage? No way.By Danei Richard • Nov 19th, 2009 • Category: Opinion
Excuse me Governor McDonnell, but I’m a little pissed off at your ignorance and would like to introduce you to the 21st century. Here in America we are allowed to live with the people we love regardless of a marriage certificate. I believe we call it freedom.
The Governor’s idea of trying to outlaw couples who are not married from living together is insulting. The fact that the idea was even allowed to be mentioned is ludicrous.
How does a state enforce such a law? Can we consider co-ed dorm rooms? What do we do about that? Not all men and women living in the same home are a couple. Perhaps they are friends, or one person of that party is not interested in the opposite sex. Are we then to say that all females must live alone or with other females? And those males must live with only males regardless of sexual orientation?
So Governor McDonnell, what you are saying is that if a couple has been together for 45 years and never married, they are not allowed to live together? Or that after a certain amount of time that it is allowed? I’m curious Governor to know whether or not you understand the extent of the statement made?
Is anyone else in an uproar over this?
