I live in Mississippi and was wanting to know if I could press charges of fornication on my spouse's live in boyfriend without having to press adultery charges on my spouse?
1 Answer from Attorneys
Fortunately, it is not against the law to fornicate in Mississippi. There is a cohabitation statute, making it a misdemeanor for a man and a woman to "unlawfully cohabitate. However it is highly unlikely any prosecutor would pursue such a charge. The cohabitation statute is unconstitutional.
