pro-cohabitation petition

We have the right of free speech, religion, assembly, press, and to petition. We also the inherent right of choice. Our ancestors chose to come to the new world. They chose to give us a bill of rights. They also chose to write a virginia declaration of rights which in section 1 states \" Section 1. That all men are by nature equally free and independent and have certain inherent rights, of which, when they enter into a state of society, they cannot, by any compact, deprive or divest their posterity; namely, the enjoyment of life and liberty, with the means of acquiring and possessing property, and pursuing and obtaining happiness and safety.\" How can a government who is a trustee and servent to the people take the right of \"enjoyment of life and liberty\"...\"pursuing and obtaining happiness and safety\" from them by saying it is a criminal act to cohabitate with a member of the opposite sex if you are not married. section 3 states \"And that, when any government shall be found inadequate or contrary to these purposes, a majority of the community has an indubitable, inalienable, and indefeasible right to reform, alter, or abolish it, in such manner as shall be judged most conducive to the public weal.\" So those of you that believe we the people have the right to determine for ourselves what life we should live, how we should live it, and who we should live it with sign this! Some people do not wish to get married, whether they are married or not is none of any person or governments business. Hence the right to privacy. I move to have the anti-cohabitation law abolished as it pertains to current and future residents and citizens.

I believe that no person or group of people has the right or authority to say we the people can not live with a member of the opposite sex unless we enter into marrage with that person. We the people should have the right of cohabitation just like we have the to speech, religion, press, assembly, petition.

    Comments: i belive the government is taking the right to live freely away from us if the do not allow cohabitation. love has no age race or sex. cohabitation isn't just for love and sexual relations like they think it is. its to get to know eachother better, to see how eachother lives. its compromise and deal making and learning how to get along just like in a marriage. you have to communicate and discuss your problems just like in a marriage. the only difference i can see is that there isn't the difficulty of a divorce if you find you can't live together. but once again there is the communnication that should be happening to get over the problems just like in a marriage.
