Looking for a place to live with your boyfriend in Florida? There's a cozy one-room studio behind bars waiting for you. A state law that dates back to the 1800's condemns opposite-sex unmarried couples living under the same roof.  
想要跟你的男友一起在佛罗里达找个地方共住吗?铁窗后面倒是有个小房间是为你准备的。一项制定于19世纪的州立法规定任何未婚男女同居都是违法的。

The Sun-Sentinel reports: "Cohabitation of unmarried people is currently a second-degree misdemeanor, 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."
据太阳哨兵报的报道:“未婚同居目前是二度轻罪,可处以500美元的罚款或最多60天的监禁。有外遇的丈夫或者妻子也适用该法,不过仅对异性婚姻生效。”

Though it's been largely ignored by courts, it's getting renewed attention as a local representative, Ritch Workman, attempts to have it repealed. 
虽然大部分法庭都不会对这一条款认真,但当一名当地民意代表Ritch Workman试图将此废除时还是引发了广泛的关注。

The law, which also condemns adultery, has been forgotten but not gone— with the exception of a 2006 case when a Jacksonville woman got her husband handcuffed for cheating. 
这一同时也是惩罚通奸的法律已经被大众所遗忘,但并没有完全消失,2006年时就有一个杰克逊维尔妇女成功以此将有外遇的丈夫扔进的监狱。

"It's not generally reported and out of 20 years in law enforcement, I've never seen a person arrested. But, it is on the books," Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Spokesman Ken Jefferson told local news at the time of the case.
“很少有人报案,在我20年的从警生涯中,我从未见过一人因此被捕。但是,确实有这条法规。”杰克逊维尔警署发言人Ken Jefferson 就此案接受当地媒体采访时称。

Now with renewed attention, many unmarried couples could also be defending themselves in court or finding refuge out of state.  According to a 2000 Florida Census poll, households with "unmarried partners" increased by 77 percent over 10 years. With more unmarried senior co-habitators than ever nationwide, the retirement state may also be looking less appealing for snowbirds. 
现在因是否废除而吸引到了大众视线后,这项法规很可能让不少未婚同居男女面临法官,或只能逃离佛州。据2000年佛州全民调查,未婚同居的家庭数比十年前增加了77%。在美国各地老年人未婚同居日益增多的大环境下,佛州这个养老圣地很可能就不再那么吸引人了。

The anti-cohabitation law, which was ruled unconstitutional in North Carolina in 2006, is just one of  Florida's overbearing parental legal judgments. Another is the penalization of bike riders that don't hold onto their handlebars. Rep. Workman is also trying to eradicate that law, which fines rebels $60 every time they try the "look ma, no hands" trick.
这项曾在2006年被北卡罗来纳州定为违宪反同居法不过是佛州众多霸道条款中的一项。其他的还有大撒把骑自行车就是违法等的规定。根据这项条款,骑车不把手放在车把上每次罚款60美元。Workman 议员也正在抗议这条法规。
