Russia wants to ban hotels from accommodating unmarried people in the same room
Russian officials have asked hotels to ban unmarried people from staying in the same room as a way to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, writes The Moscow Times.
Hotels would have to "explain" why unmarried couples are staying in the same room, according to Rospotrebnadzor, Russia's consumer protection office.
"The task of obtaining proof of marital status is the full responsibility of the hotel," Rospotrebnadzor said, but Rostourism, the federal travel agency, said guests would not be required to present marriage certificates.
The Consumer Protection Authority subsequently announced that the accommodation ban applies to people who do not normally come into contact with everyday life.
"The rules are: mainly accommodation of one person, except families", tried to clarify Rospotrebnadzor, adding "in other words, it is recommended that people who do not contact each other in everyday life not be accommodated in the same room to avoid additional risks of infection ”.
Hotels, restaurants and other businesses in the hospitality sector have begun to gradually reopen in Russia from June 1 after a two-month quarantine imposed across the country.

Up to a third of men in Russia raise other people's children and do not know about it. Some women themselves are "mistaken" about the paternity of a child
From 10 to 30 percent of married men in Russia do not raise their children and do not know about it. The moment of truth becomes tragic for them, because subconsciously the representatives of the stronger sex perceive the child they are raising as their heir.
Sometimes the fair sex choose a person for their couple who does not greatly admire them, but is calm, reliable and family man. At the same time, women, like other females in nature, tend to look for the most worthy contender for the role of the genetic father of the unborn child. For this reason, they are subconsciously attracted to alpha males - men who have high testosterone levels, are popular with girls, but not the fact that they will become exemplary fathers. Clinical psychologist and sexologist Valentin Denisov-Melnikov spoke about this in a conversation with NEWS.ru.
Some women decide to live with an exemplary family man, and on the side to date men who are especially attractive to her. Such intrigues sometimes end in pregnancy from a lover. The girl says to her husband that he will soon become a "dad".
Moreover, a woman can convince herself that the father of a child is a spouse. Sometimes girls even forget that they entered into intimacy with someone else - this event is forced out of consciousness into subconsciousness. The same thing sometimes happens with traumatic experiences. So a woman feels more psychologically comfortable - she now needs to raise this child with her husband.
In addition, a woman can deliberately have offspring from a lover. This usually happens in families where she is unable to get pregnant from her spouse. In this case, the fair sex reassures themselves that they cheated on her husband out of good intentions - in order to save the family, the psychologist explained.
Meanwhile, the desire to find a young lover can also push a woman to commit adultery. In adulthood, some girls are attracted by the infantility, spontaneity, spontaneity and childlike energy that younger partners have, said psychologist, expert on relationships between men and women Alisa Metelina in a conversation with NEWS.ru.
Attraction to young men is also usually experienced by the fair sex with high testosterone levels and strong libido. Often among these women there are careerists.
The cost of cheating
Conducting a paternity test for men is usually prompted by problems in the relationship with the wife or the assumptions of others that the spouse has "walked up" the child on the side. This question becomes quite acute for the representatives of the stronger sex: raising a child, a man invests his resources in him - time, money and love - and unconsciously perceives it as an heir, Denisov-Melnikov noted.
Men who find out that they are raising other people's children face great emotional shock. At this moment, they also realize that their beloved spouse has been deceiving them for a long time. It is especially difficult for those "fathers" who are raising a boy.
Men, in principle, relate better to female children. It is usually easier for them to bring up someone else's girl than a boy. However, you need to understand that in any case, it will be a great shock for a person to find out that he did not raise his child, - said Denisov-Melnikov.
Whether a man leaves his spouse after revealing a secret depends on the characteristics of his character, whether he sees his life with another woman. Some accept the situation and forgive their wife. Nevertheless, in any case, the event becomes a great test for the marriage.
The proportion of families in which men are raising someone else's child varies by region. It can be higher in cities such as Moscow and St. Petersburg: freer morals prevail in them than in small towns and villages, the clinical psychologist concluded.
