Ah, New York State, home to the capital of world culture, New York City. Remember, though, there’s more to the Empire State than just the Big Apple. There are plenty of other towns in the region that aren’t quite as cosmopolitan as NYC. You may think of New York as the home of modern enlightenment and worldliness, but the state has its fair share of stupid laws on the books. Granted, many of these silly rules are old and rarely enforced, but if you’re not careful you just might be breaking the law.

The laws that govern the state are still a little arcane when it comes to matrimonial bliss. According to the official rules, adultery is still a criminally punishable offense. What’s more, if a married couple files for divorce, they’re not allowed to use “irreconcilable differences” as their motivation unless both parties agree.
