NY Post: Christian couple's "rules" for their marriage spark backlash
Apparently the wife posted a tiktok video about her and her husband's marriage, and the rules/boundaries that come with it, and it went viral. People are pissed off at these simple rules (which I personally think are fine):

1. No watching pornography
2. No being alone with a member of the opposite sex
3. No texting the opposite sex without the other knowing
4. No friends with the opposite sex

I can understand how #4 might be a little extreme to some people, but there are quite a few people out there who believe men and women can't just be friends.

Why the New York Post decided to cover this I don't know. However, I'm posting the story here because of the amount of people who think that their rules are beyond insane. Though I'm sure these same people would have applauded them for being progressive and brave had they agreed to an open marriage.

Those rules shouldn’t be hard to follow with an arse like that.

You only posted rules imposed on the husband. What is the wife's end of the bargain?

I mean if that’s the relationship norms they agreed to mutually then it’s not really anyone’s business.

But I’d argue there’s some insecurity rooted in some of those rules or that there may be trust issues in the relationship.

Even if those rules were crazy I don't see what it would matter to others seeing its between those two, not anyone else

Not tempting yourself =\= insecurity. If more couples observed these rules, there’d be a lot less cheating.

Meh. If you can’t handle your SO being friends with the opposite sex then I think there’s likely some insecurity/trust issues going on.

That doesn’t mean you’re down with them hanging out with them alone (I can understand that one).

I’m willing to bet the no pornography one gets broken. But I’m also not insecure about that either. If I’m not in the mood or have other things going on, I’d much rather my SO utilize some porn then go without.

Those four rules all reek of trust issues, which begs the question: if you don’t trust someone, why marry them?

At the end of the day every couple has to do what whatever it takes to uphold the vows they took. Not promises, VOWS.

Why the frick society needs to comment on it is beyond me.

I’ll say it again, the 2 parent, 1 man 1 woman home is the foundation of free society. It’s why it HAS to be destroyed by leftists.

He married up. In his shoes I’d be guarding the castle too.

His incognito mode browsing history on his burner laptop he hides in the house is interesting I’m sure

Those rules are ridiculous but they don’t justify a NYP article. Lots of people are in controlling marriages.

re: NY Post: Christian couple's "rules" for their marriage spark backlash
There is nothing wrong with a relationship that puts up clear boundaries ,and if this works for them than more power to them. My wife and I do have boundaries and two things she will not tolerate from me is cheating on her and raising my hand to her. I will not tolerate being cheated on either. My wife and I are not this strict, but number 2 and 3 are reasonable that is something we agree on. I have had an ex text me and that was shut down and the same with her. We also have access to each others phone. Whatever works and each one is comfortable with is good for them.
