No soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.
What does it Mean?
According to the Third Amendment, the government cannot force citizens to share their homes with soldiers (quartering) in a time of peace. In times of war, quartering is only legal in a manner that is prescribed by law. This amendment was inspired by the horrors of the 1776 Quartering Act which forced Americans to share their homes with British soldiers.
