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 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.

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



  • Yeah, revisiting this, it still looks crazy.


  • This is just crazy. It is entirely possible that it is true that these are her demands. However it is very sad if it is…. :-(


  • This has to be made up for click bait


  • This isn’t serious is it ? Why would she want him to not have a life other than her? And 50 hours work a week ? All sounds rather odd.


  • This seems like a p-take…or click bait? Surely this can’t be real


  • He’s obviously ok with it or they wouldn’t have got married, if it works for them, all the best!

    Not for me personally though haha


  • I definately think a Marriage workshop, would help this couple. The list does sound like all issues with previous relationships in one.


  • Can you imagine the uproar if a guy posted this about his wife…….

    Yet a female posts it and gets a few “ohh she’s a bit cray-cray” posts….

    I seriously hope she gets the help she needs….


  • Run whilst you can. Guarantee if he tried to give her any of those rules she would crack the shits and go on about him not trusting her etc.
    screw having to live like that


  • Gee that’s a bit much


  • Wow! I’d like to know what kind of guy would go along with that list. Way too controlling.


  • Yikes! She sounds like my mother-in-law and I can only imagine what the ‘original’ list was… WOW! Poor man


  • Part of me wonders if she posted the list for a reaction knowing it would get a lot of attention but either way it sounds like a couple in need of some serious help.


  • Would have to be a joke. No way anyone is this insecure. Will be a lonely life.


  • a bit loopy she is
