A girlfriend has listed the ten ‘controversial’ rules she and her boyfriend of six years have set in place to ensure a happy and long-lasting relationship. 

Gia Aldisert, from Los Angeles, shared her list and sparked debate between those who thought the rules were ‘sensible’ and those who thought they were ‘too strict’.

The rules include not following hot models on Instagram, knowing one another’s phone passwords and not having any best friends of the opposite sex.

The 21-year-old real estate agent repeated multiple times in a lengthy TikTok video that she and her boyfriend trust each other and have ‘nothing to hide’.

First, they both need to have their phone location turned on at all times for ‘convenience’ and ‘safety’ reasons.

‘We both feel a lot more comfortable having each other’s locations in case anything happened to either of us,’ Gia began. 

She added how it’s ‘convenient’ knowing where her boyfriend is without asking, especially if they’re meeting up somewhere after work. 

‘Neither of us have anything to hide. It would be kind of suspicious if we didn’t want each other to see each other’s locations because it’s like okay, where are we?’ she said.

Next, her boyfriend is never allowed to attend any strip clubs.  

‘I just don’t get the point of a guy with a girlfriend going to strip clubs. It’s a bunch of naked chicks dancing on him and also raunchier things happen,’ she said. 

‘Not to mention, why are you paying her bills? You should be paying my bills, if anything.’

Some of the ten rules included not following hot models on Instagram, knowing one another's phone passwords, having location settings turned on at all times and not having any best friends of the opposite sex

For the third rule, they are allowed to go on ‘girls trips’ or ‘boys trips’ with friends, as maintaining friendships and their own independence is important.  

‘We completely trust each other and started dating at a really young age so we both feel like it’s important to experience our own things,’ Gia said. 

‘If I want to go on a girls trip, I’m going to go. And if he wants to go to a car show, he can go.’ 

There are some tight rules when it comes to social media and neither of them are allowed to like ‘thirst trap’ posts on Instagram.  

‘Liking someone’s picture is completely public so everyone can now see that one of us doesn’t respect the other if they’re going around liking thirst traps,’ Gia said. 

‘It gives the person [in the photo] the idea that they caught their attention which is a big no no.’ 

What’s more, they’re also not allowed to follow Instagram models of the opposite sex as this is deemed ‘inappropriate’.  

‘Why are you following a random person that you’re attracted to?’ Gia asked. 

What are the ten rules?

1. Both always have their phone location turned on 

2. No strip clubs 

3. ‘Girls trips’ or ‘boys trips’ are allowed

4. No liking ‘thirst trap’ photos on Instagram 

5. Don’t follow Instagram models of the opposite sex 

6. Both can have friends of the opposite sex – but they can’t be best friends 

7. Both can go to nightclubs 

8. Both know each other’s phone passwords 

9. Porn isn’t allowed to be watched  

10. They won’t get married until they’re both financially free

Gia is happy for her boyfriend to be friends with other women, however they can’t be best friends as this makes her feel uncomfortable.  

‘We’re each other’s best friends so we need to be each other’s priorities,’ she said. 

‘We also have some boundaries, like no sleepovers with the opposite sex and if someone of the opposite sex is being flirty or anything then that’s a big no.’

The couple also can go to night clubs with friends and know each other’s phone passwords. 

However, neither of them are allowed to watch porn. 

‘This one might be controversial but I’m not cool with porn. I honestly think it’s really toxic for your mind, it gives you unrealistic standards, and it’s super addictive,’ she said. 

‘My boyfriend and I practically live together so it just seems very unnecessary.’ 

For the final rule, the couple promised each other they won’t get married until they’re financially stable. 

‘I’m still in college, I need to be financially free before we get married. Not only are we super young, but weddings are expensive as f***,’ she said. 

‘Me and my boyfriend are both extra and we’re going to want to have the biggest, most insane wedding you’ve ever seen.’ 

The detailed video sparked a heated debate and the video has since been viewed more than 8.4million times. 

‘Girl these are basic healthy relationship rules,’ one woman wrote, another said: ‘This is a mature and healthy relationship.’ 

‘These sound like very sensible rules!’ a third added. 

However, others strongly disagreed. 

”We completely trust each other’ but also here’s 87 rules,’ one said. 

Another said: ‘Sounds more like controlling and avoidant methods, rather than dealing with and communicating each other’s insecurities and working on your own stuff.’  

‘Yeah it is very weird to have rules in relationships if you trust each other,’ someone else said.
