I read this summary of laws banning adultery in the United States.
Now, the wording of some of these laws made me wonder if any of them are remnants from a time when pre-marital sex (not just adultery) was banned. For example, maybe the pre-marital parts were removed, and the adultery parts were retained. Or maybe they are just interpreted differently now.
I certainly know that it was once illegal in certain European countries.
Has pre-marital sex ever been illegal anywhere in the United States?
