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.

Facing Backlash

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 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 “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.

Have you ever been presented with a list of rules in a relationship? Tell us in the comments below.



  • I wonder how long these two will last together with a list like that?! I reckon he would need to drink, and get drunk, more then twice a year married to her lol


  • Wow, wonder what his list was like. Will he even have a life?


  • I can understand no smoking and no porn, but the rest seem unfair.


  • I hope she gave the list before they married so he had time to escape, if a man gave this list to a woman there would be all hell breaking loose


  • When this man stood by his wife and said for better or worse he definitely got what he said. Worse. This poor undermining lady needs a few rules given to her.


  • Ouch what a controller. I wonder if she would like similar rules made for her


  • I once dated a charmer that told me it was unfair if I took my children out places (I had taken my sons to watch monster trucks) while he was away at work…. meanwhile I had only just started seeing this guy and didn’t live with or share and bills with him…. control didn’t sit well with me.


  • A marriage is a partnership of love and should need no set of rules in the first place.


  • When they finally make and release a male robot please let this woman know because no human should be with her.


  • she might find him in prison but then he cant go everywhere with her, maybe on a remote farm?


  • I think she’d be very lucky to find a man with all these rules. I couldn’t imagine creating a list of rules for someone.


  • THats a bit extreme I don’t think anyone can accept this sort of list


  • No I’ve never been presented with a list of rules, or never presented myself any list of rules to my husband.
    Sounds like a sick personality.


  • Wonder how she would feel adhering to her own rules


  • Good luck in finding a husband,your list is ridiculous!
