The Wild, Outdated Illinois Laws That Will Squish Valentine’s Day
Illinois has some pretty outlandish laws when it comes to how men and women interact with each other.
Nothing will squish the joy and romance of Valentine's Day quite like the wild, random laws that Illinois has. Some of them pertain to how men and women talk, what they are and aren't allowed to do, and definitely concerning PDA.
While Illinois doesn't enforce all of these laws anymore, they still stand. So let's look at some of the love-related state and city laws you'll find in Illinois.
