Couple Face Backlash After Strict Marriage ‘rules’ Go Viral

An American couple is facing backlash on TikTok after a video outlining the ‘rules’ they have for their marriage has gone viral.

In the video posted on Saturday, TikTok user Bailey McPherson says some of the rules in her and her husband’s marriage include a ban on porn and being alone with members of the opposite sex.

McPherson, who has been married to her husband Zac since 2018, describes herself as “hella conservative”.

The video, which has received over 2.5 million views, is titled: “Rules my husband and I have for our marriage that make people ANGRY.”

Rules include not being friends with the opposite sex, not being alone with the opposite sex and not texting the opposite sex without the other person knowing.

Additional rules include not “lusting” after others - which is extended to not following “scandalous” pages on social media - no porn and always putting each other first, even above their parents.

Fellow TikTok users were quick to give their opinion on the rules in the comments, with one saying: “Tell me you don’t trust your partner without telling me you don’t trust your partner.”
