I wondered about this. I did hear on tv that under Utah law, it was still illegal to live together as if you married, if you are married to someone else.Originally Posted by Poppy Fields;4086474;
I know that my state of NC has an adultery statute. It is actually illegal to commit adultery, however, no one is ever prosecuted for it.
It's difficult to get correct infomation about legal matters from the media, I have found. I don't know if the reporters just don't understand the law or they ask the wrong people for answers. Either way there is much misformation provided by the media on things like jail v. prison, not guilty v. innocent, arrest warrant v. indictment, etc. They seem to go with what they think sounds right or what they saw on Law & Order and it's not actually like that.
