Utah legislature passes bill legalizing sex outside of marriage

The Utah state legislature on Tuesday decriminalized fornication, making it legal to have sex outside of marriage.

The current law that criminalizes fornication is included in the state’s criminal code chapter on offenses against the family. Those found guilty are punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of $1,000. 

The law, however, is not pursued by police for prosecution and is not enforced.
