TALLAHASSEE, FLA.—Unmarried couples who want to take the plunge and move in together, take heart. A Florida legislator is seeking to make you legal.

“Cohabitation” of unmarried people is currently a second-degree misdemeanor in the U.S. state, punishable by $500 or up to 60 days in jail. The same penalty applies to cheating husbands and wives—though only to opposite-sex couples.

The laws have been on the books since the late 1800s, but are rarely enforced. In 2006, though, a Jacksonville woman did take advantage of the law and have her husband arrested for cheating, according to a news report. (It’s not clear how the case came out.)
