10 odd drinking by-laws from around the world

One glass of wine for married women (Bolivia)

Bolivia apparently still has a law on its books that prohibits married women from having more than one glass of wine in a restaurant or bar.

Those who enjoy more are supposedly at risk of becoming “morally and sexually lax” and it is sufficient enough grounds for a divorce.

As with a number of other laws around the world quite how widely this law is actually enforced anymore is open to question and, as a counterpoint to this rather sexist bit of legislation, know that in Pennsylvania, technically a man must have written permission from his wife in order to buy booze.
