This woman has made a comprehensive catalogue of requirements that her husband is required to meet if he wants to make her happy.
It includes a ban from social media, female friends and drinking, but this Australian woman has shown no hesitation in sharing her list of ten rules for her husband on Facebook. Asking those in the Facebook group for their honest opinion, Rosiee has been slammed for her overbearing and unrealistic expectations.
Laying Down The Law
The list posted to Facebook was actually a rewrite, with Rosiee acknowledging that her initial set of rules may have been a bit harsh, according to The Daily Mail. See if you think these are more reasonable…
1. No Female Friends.
2. No Social Media.
3. No Male Friends With Partners. Must Be Single Males Only.
4. Must Work 50 Hours Minimum Per Week.
5. No Smoking.
6. Can Drink, But Only Two Times A Year Or Less, And Can’t Get Drunk.
7. No Playstation/Game Machines.
8. No Porn.
9. Must Keep House Clean At All Times.
10. No Going Out Without Me.
Yikes. Sounds more like a list of rules for someone under house arrest than a husband in a loving marriage.
Facebook users were outraged at the set of demands, with one Facebook user writing “you should just get a dog” and another saying “this is your husband, right?”
Whilst responses to Rosiee’s post were almost entirely negative, some users were quick to point out that the list is evidence of her own insecurities and fears that her husband would leave her news.com.au reports.
Therapist Shannon Thomas said that Rosiee’s controlling behaviour suggests a toxic personality. “Toxic people have the ability to affect all areas of our lives, and we are often blind to this,” she told whimn.com.au. “We make excuses for them. We believe and internalise the lies they feed us. And in turn, this affects how we view ourselves and our worth.”
We really hope the couple can find a way to be together that doesn’t require a long list of rules or an impossible list of expectations. Ironically such restrictive requirements designed to prevent the relationship ending may in fact be its undoing.
