BISMARCK, N.D. -- Living together out of wedlock would be downgraded from a sex crime to fraud, and then only if the couple claims to be married, under a proposal that passed the state Senate on Friday.
I can only assume that North Dakota does not allow gay marriages. If so, the old law was discriminatory towards heterosexuals as homosexuals could certainly live together out of wedlock and would not have committed a sex crime. Imagine that, homosexuals having more rights in ND than heterosexuals. Unless, of course, it's a sex crime to be gay in North Dakota.
Anyways, bravo ND for joining the 21st century...sorta.
