A woman has shared the unusual rules her and her husband abide by in their marriage. You can see the rules here:
Christians Bailey and Zac McPherson have been married for three years and admit that their marriage 'rules' can make people angry.
In the clip, which was shared on TikTok, Bailey wrote: "Rules my Husband and I have for our marriage that make people ANGRY."
Before she then explains that her and her husband are not allowed to have 'friends of the opposite sex' as well as 'no work bfs/gfs or being alone with members of the opposite sex'.
They also have to tell each other before they send a text message to a member of the opposite sex.
In another clip, Bailey listed several more rules, including: "No lusting after others (no following scandalous pages)' and 'always put each other first (even over our parents)'.
As you can imagine, the clips have caused quite a stir online, so much so that Bailey has since turned comments off on the clips.
However, according to the Independent, many people had a problem with the rules.
With one TikTok user saying: "Tell me you don't trust your partner without telling me you don't trust your partner."
Another said the list was 'absolutely insane'. While a third person chipped in: "This just sounds like insecurities tbh."
But not everyone thought the rules were a bad idea, with one person posting: "I agree with all of these."
And another adding: "And that ladies and gentlemen is respecting your partner."
Bailey has since explained that the rules aren't due to a lack of trust, but are there to give boundaries within the relationship.
She said: "It's not a lack of trust thing so much as it's just a boundary of respect that we both feel is right for us.
"Because I personally feel like as a married woman, I have no need for a companionship with another man that I cannot get with my husband. My husband has no need for a companionship with another woman that he cannot get from his wife.
"And I feel like if you personally feel like you do need those companionships, specifically with the opposite sex, that you cannot somehow get from your spouse or those of the same sex, that's a problem.
"To me and my husband it would be a red flag if my partner could not respect said boundaries."
In a follow up, she said: "At the end of the day, I don't expect non-Christians to understand Christian marriages."
