I'm curious as to what 'rule(s)' you and your Husband set when you got married.

Ours is:

NEVER say you want a divorce no matter how mad you are unless you mean it.

We don't have any. I don't think there's a need. We are in this marriage together to respect & love each other.

We have that rule too. But I say a lot of things that don't need to be said. Like if he abused me or the children I would leave him. He knows that, and knew it before I said it, but I said it anyway.

 I'm glad you used quotes for "rules" because I don't think having rules is necessarily a good idea. If the two of you love and respect each other, like a marriage should be, there's no need to set boundaries/rules.

However, I agree with you about not saying the "d" word :) and we also both choose not to be alone with members of the opposite sex. It's not a rule, but we both agree that it's disrespectful to put ourselves in a postion where a rumor could start. I'm sure there are more, but those are the only 2 I can think of.

Apart from the unspoken rule concerning fidelity, we don't have any and we don't need them.

we've set that rule up since becoming married. we both know what's tolerable and what isn't. and what would warrant a loss of what we have built together.

Ummm...no divorce ever was the only rule. When I said I do I knew my wife would never sign divorce papers.

Not sure how to explain it but if one of us is truelly thinking of going outside the marriage we need to show enough respect to talk to eachother instead of cheating!
Yes yes yes I know it would be respectful to be attracted to someone other than eachother but we live in the real world where these things happen! We don't live with blinders on or our eyes closed!
