When you are traveling with your partner and feeling romantic, there is one state in the world, where you can get legally married if you say out loud three times that the person is your husband or wife.
Amazing, right?
Do you know where we need to travel to in order to get married this way?
It is indeed in the mighty state of Texas.
If you publicly announce that the person is your husband or wife three times, your marriage is legal in the eyes of Texas. A few caveats: both parties must be at least 18 years old, unmarried, and not related to each other.
Some more amazing laws in Texas
You Must Warn Your Victims 24 Hours in Advance
If you’re planning a criminal activity in Texas, you must warn your victims within 24 hours of the crime. You must explain the nature of your upcoming crime, orally or in writing, giving your victims fair warning. This strange law is a recent addition to Texas’ anticrime provisions in an effort to reduce crime.
You Can’t Eat Your Neighbor’s Garbage Without Permission
One man’s trash is another man’s criminal conviction in Texas. If you eat your neighbor’s garbage without permission, you may face jail time for trespassing and stealing another’s property.
You Can’t Feather Dust a Public Building
Texas currently prohibits the dusting of any public building with a feather duster. It’s unclear whether the dusting of a building with another tool is legal… or why the state would need to outlaw such an obscure act.
