Not everyone is familiar with the Rule of 50. In fact, you might have heard of it here first on Asian Date. But, to tell you the truth, the Rule of 50 has been in existence for, probably, hundreds of years. But, not a lot of us in relationships follow it.
Asian Date: What You Need To Know About The Rule of 50
The Rule of 50 is not about dating when you’re 50 years old, nor does it have something to do with the 50 Shades of Grey franchise. The Rule of 50 is simple. It states that you need to do 50% in your relationship while your partner does the rest of the 50%.
This Is Not Something New
“That’s nothing new!” you say. You’re right! As mentioned earlier, this is not a dating tip that’s fresh out the box, but we saw the need to reiterate the importance of the Rule of 50 in today’s post because it seems that most couple nowadays are in relationship limbo because they either forgot this rule or ignore it.
Are You Following The Rule of 50?
Now it’s time to do some relationship assessment for you to know if your following the Rule of 50 or not. Answer the following questions honestly:
- Do you spend more time on your phone than talking to your partner?
- Do you often watch TV at home while your partner does all of the chores?
- Do you find that your partner is the one who is always apologizing after fights or arguments?
- Have you noticed yourself using the pronoun “I” in most of your statements?
- Was it ages ago when you can last remember the time you did something nice for your significant other?
If your answer is yes to all of these questions, you might be doing just the bare minimum in your relationship. Things need to change, in this case.
