Unmarried couples

I read that it is illegal to have sex out of wedlock in Tunisia. Has anyone had any hassle or problems sharing a room with an unmarried partner in Tunisia? I am slightly worried that with different surnames but 4 kids in tow it will be obviously we have sex out of marriage!

Hi Nadine

That is for Tunisian nationals - as a tourist (assuming neither of you are Tunisian) it wont be an issue.

The law is valid for tourists and tunisians alike, but when something bad in this regard is conducted and ONLY involves non-tunisians, authorities in Tunisia will usually look the other way ... unless you have given them a reason not to. :)
