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.

No rules. Thought our marriage vows covered all that.

Just your standard marital agreement:  No flirting, no cheating, respect each other.... yada yada yada.  And never go to bed mad.  If we can't work it out before bedtime, then put on a pot of coffee 'cause we're goin into overtime, baby!

We do not have "Rules" we just treat each other with respect in all aspects.

I have these with my man...we're not married but I know we're going to be one day...
These and no flirting with girls, and no friendships of the opposite sex (too many issues there!)

Quoting fostermomoftwo:

these are what we easily agreed on

never say you want a divorce no matter what unless you do mean it

no infidelity of any kind, no porn, no looking at others in a sexual way

trust, no matter how much it might hurt the other one always tell the truth

open communication

and

before we act w/o are spouse around we think would we do or say this if he/she was here?

we don't really have any "rules" but there are things we don't do out of respect towards one another, if one of us slips up though its not like we get in trouble or anything so I wouldn't consider it rules.

 We didn't 'set' any rules ... we just follow our vows, that is all we need; that and our love, respect and consideration for each other.  .... oh yeah, & above all else trust & lots of laughter!!

Rules? idk the concept seems odd to need to set up rules when its just common sense really.
Are you in a marriage or under a contract with obligations you must follow or else.

Idk the concept is foreign to me.

No cheating of ANY kind, not sexual not emotional etc. Neither one of us believe a married person has any business hanging out at bars or at strip clubs etc at least no one we are married to.

We dont believe in having friends of the opposite sex either.

Neither of us wanted to be in a relationship with anyone who smokes, drinks TOO much as in gets buzzed or drunk and no one who does any drugs or gambles as a habit.

We both wanted to be with someone who makes our marriage and our 5 kids TOP priorities above everything else.

We believe if any issues or problems come up We work on it together as a team and put one anothers feelings above being RIGHT, and dont bad talk eachother to other people.

We were both on the same page and both looking for the same things and we're both still very very happy with it all 9 yrs later. No regrets. Perfect pairing between us.
