A married couple caused a serious debate online late last year after sharing the rules they follow in their marriage.

There is no rule book to this commitment known as marriage, and each individual couple will often play it by their own rules.

Of course, there are a bunch of scenarios that are required for a marriage to work out, like being faithful, plus generally loving and caring for each other just to name a few.

But there are a few less unconventional rules that some married couples follow as they obviously believe it will be good for their marriage in the long run.

However, this particular couple have since faced a bit of backlash after sharing their rules.

Jaden and Andy from Texas, US, got married in August 2021 after graduating from Abilene Christian University, and have been documenting their relationship on TikTok ever since.

The couple's posts on TikTok are usually pretty inoffensive, but one recent post about the strict rules they follow in their marriage had some viewers up in arms.

While the married couple claimed that the three rules have helped them maintain a healthy marriage, some followers called out the 'toxic' behaviour.

Captioning the viral video, Jaden and Andy wrote: "Controversial things about our marriage that we didn't realise are controversial."

In the video, they laid out their top three unusual rules.

Firstly, the couple have promised to share their locations with each other on Life360, a family tracking app.

Rule number two involves 'sharing all passwords and having no secrets'.

All passwords does seem a little bit much, wouldn't you say?

Finally, the couple have agreed to no 'hanging out with the opposite gender alone'.

Certainly one of the more controversial rules.

As you can probably imagine, there were a lot of viewers who were wary of Jaden and Andy's rules, and took to the comments to let them know.

"Tell me you don't trust each other without telling me..." wrote one TikToker.

"But if you truly trusted [each] other none of this would be necessary, no?" asked a second.

While a third described the couple's rules as: "Toxic as hell."

Meanwhile, a fourth pointed out the 'bad vibes on the last one'. They said: "If you can trust the other partner then there's no need."

But not everyone felt so strongly about the couple's rules. In fact, a lot of people actually agreed with them.

"I do and agree with all these things- and I’m a marriage therapist," wrote one user.

"That’s how it should be," another agreed. "Not even as a privacy issue but safety. I have my best friend's location on too."

To each their own, I suppose.
