     It should be a scientific fact, there are rules to relationships. Anything that’s given a title, expectations automatically come.  You go to see a doctor to expect a diagnosis, a professor to educate, a police officer to protect, and a spouse has some special “rules” too. It’s a role being taken on, with full expectations of one another.  Roles that are exchanged, often transcribe into rules of a relationship. When a relationship forms it shouldn’t change anything, the reason it was agreed to be one, was because you balanced one another out.

     People that get into relationships for beneficial reasons are automatically vetoed out here. It’s a given what they expect from the other. For example when did it become mandatory to send a good morning text each and every day? Yes those make us feel warm inside but why does it have to be a rule or an issue when it’s done then suddenly halts. The other person now feels entitled to some sort of explanation to a made up rule the other isn’t abiding by.  Now that might’ve been the “thing” that separated him from the rest but he’s not technically breaking any rules.

     Rule: no friends of the opposite sex. If that rule was to truly be followed in relationships, it would end before it began. There is no possible way to not be friends with the opposite sex. This is a rule that should rule out all rules of relationships. In normality, you better have friends of the opposite sex. That should be the utmost concern. How is it so conveniently set up where there’s no mention of you having female / male friends? That’s a little too perfect.

     Having friends of the opposite sex, that’s attracted to your mate, commonly will cause issues. Make that negative a positive with reassurance “It’s yours, nobody else’s” as drake would like to lyric. Honestly speaking doesn’t that give you a one up? They want what they can’t have so what’s the problem?

     Think about you as a child, didn’t you rebel when rules were to be set and followed? The feeling of commitment fears a lot because of what’s expected. Scratch rules and enjoy the state of a relationship compared to the role.
