Nope not illigal as long as you don't have sex in it.

No problem as long as you are both adults with identification. If you act suspiciously you may be stopped though. This includes for example indecent behavior, sex and staying in a deserted parking lot. In my opinion your car make and model, general condition and window tint are all considered for your behavior.

Good luck and have safe sex.

I heard stories of expats getting checked and being asked for marriage certificates and getting booked for not having one and sharing the same ride. It get pretty scary here. glad to see people having legit answers

Legally, the police have no right to ask for your marriage certificate, but some people still just keep a copy just in case the police man was hell-bent on finding anything on you.

In your example, the police man gives you a ticket for picking up hitchhikers which is illegal in Kuwait. As there is no relation or proof of relation between you and the other person, the police men can theoretically accuse you of picking up hitchhikers. As mentioned above, your nationality, car make and model, general condition of the car and window tint all play in the police man's judgment of you.
