Massachusetts Bill Would Outlaw In Home Sex Between Divorcing Parents

Massachusetts is considering outlawing sex in the home for divorcing couples until their divorces are finalized.

The bill was proposed by Sen. Richard J. Ross of Wrentham on behalf of constituent “Robert LeClair, who wrote it himself….” Ross’ staff claims he doesn’t support the bill and is introducing it as “citizen legislation,” which is allowed by Massachusetts law.

The bill reads: “In divorce, separation, or 209A proceedings involving children and a marital home, the party remaining in the home shall not conduct a dating or sexual relationship within the home until a divorce is final and all financial and custody issues are resolved, unless the express permission is granted by the courts.”

No specific penalty is described for violating the proposed law.
