Today, I read a post on one of my friend’s blogs. The post was entitled “Facebook Rules for Marriage.” At first the title kind of took me by surprise. Rules for marriage? Really? The more I thought about it though, the more I liked the concept. It seems like a great idea to have mutually accepted rules that each party will follow. With Facebook causing far too many divorces today I think it’s important for couples to have “Facebook Rules” that they agree upon. A few of the rules she listed was to “Share Login Info.” Check, my husband and I do that. Another was “Don’t DM privately with anyone of the opposite sex (except family members).” While we don’t exactly follow this we do make a point of adding each other to those conversations so there can never be any room for question. If I’m messaging a man I’ll also add his wife into the conversation too so she doesn’t have any reason to be suspicious.

What do you think about having rules for marriage? Aside from Facebook, what other rules have you and your spouse agreed upon?
