Love & Marriage Love & Marriage

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 go to bed in separate places in our home because we're angry. That's been one from the beginning. Also the divorce one that you mentioned. That is a serious word.

Don't leave your dirty socks on the couch and empty your pockets before you put your jeans in the dirty clothes basket. Seriously, this is like the main thing we fight over. ;-)

we never set any rules. He knows me and I know him well enough before we got married so there was no need to set a rule.

We never drop the D word.
Never threaten to take the kids.
Don't leave the house when angry.

 got a lot of them...no stip clubs, preferrably no porn either, but if i don't feel like having sex with you-have at it. no chat lines, no lieing, no cheating, no calling or associating with a past love, etc. just off the top of my head. controlling, maybe, but thesea are things that husband shouldn't do (or wives) and you have many that do it and bring a world of issues through the door!

um, don't cheat? there are the typical unspoken rules, but we have never overtly discussed little oddities quite like that, I don't think. Maybe in due time. ; )

We will never be alone with a member of the opposite sex to whom we are not related. Not because we don't trust each other but because we don't trust other people. We never want there to be any cause to question each other or for other people to be able to say anything against us in this.

The only exception is when we have to have a repair person in our home and DH cannot stay home so I have to but I don't stay in the same room with them any longer than is necessary to show the problem and review the work.

Rules? No. We don't need rules to govern our love and our marriage.

No rules, we entered in this together and we're both adults. We don't need specific rules to dictate our actions or our marriage.
