A proposed law by Massachusetts would ban couples who are splitting up from engaging in sexual activity with each other until their divorce is complete.
The state government might implement the law banning parents who are splitting up from engaging in sexual intimacy within their home until their divorce is complete, reports News.com.au.
Supporters say that the bill is meant to prevent domestic violence and shield children while divorces are underway. However, non-supporters are of the view that it is a backward curtailment of individual rights.
In addition to the divorce bill, local lawmakers will also consider a bill to reform the state's alimony laws.
If passed, the bill would end lifetime alimony payments in most cases and cap how much one spouse is ordered to pay to the other.
