Girlfriend, 21, married to boyfriend while still in college shares list of ‘ridiculous’ rules they follow to stay loyal: ‘I can’t talk to other men’
- Jo and Tucker Sorrell, both 21, got married while still in college in the United States.
- The couple went viral for the video they claim is a “joke”
A young Christian couple listed the ‘strict’ limits they placed on each other to avoid ‘temptation’ while in college.
Jo and Tucker Sorrell, both 21, from Virginia, mutually agreed that they were not allowed to sit next to each other, reply to discussion posts or have teachers of the opposite sex.
They were also “banned” from texting the opposite sex, with Jo even saying she couldn’t talk to her brother without her husband present.
However, after videos detailing their ‘rules’ went viral, Jo and Tucker changed their tune and ‘come clean’, saying they were ‘joking’ about the limits and didn’t expect their followers to ‘take it seriously’. Serious’.
Jo posted two clips to her popular TikTok account and listed the “limits” she had with her husband as a married couple still in college.

Jo and Tucker Sorrell, both 21, from Virginia, mutually agreed that they were not allowed to sit apart, respond to discussion posts or have teachers of the opposite sex.
‘Limits’ in the list of the young couple
- College classes must be taught by a teacher of the same gender.
- Cannot sit next to someone of the opposite sex
- Replying to discussion posts from the opposite sex is not allowed
- You can only do group projects with someone of the same gender.
- Be sure to tell all of your classmates and teachers that you are married.
- You cannot call or text the opposite sex without the other spouse being present
- if they go to gym alone, they should Facetime with their spouse
“We are not allowed to sit next to the opposite sex during class, and we can only respond to discussion board posts made by the same sex,” he said.
The religious woman revealed that she “didn’t really feel comfortable” with her husband responding to another woman’s post, even if it had interesting points.
“If we have to do a group project and we’re assigned the opposite sex to be our partner, then we always ask the teacher to switch us just to be safe,” she added.
The couple also ‘tried their best’ to only have teachers of the same gender as themselves, but this proved difficult at times.
“I have a male psychology professor, but Tucker sits in that class with me,” Jo said.
She added, “At the beginning of every semester, during introductions, we’ll surely mention that we’re married so no one tries to cross the boundaries.”
Jo and Tucker always make sure to include themselves in conversations when they need to contact the opposite sex via text or call.
“If I have to text my brother, I make sure to include Tucker in the text chain,” she said.
One of the last ‘rules’ Jo shared was her quirky gymnastics routine.
“We try not to go to the gym without each other, but if we do, we always FaceTime each other all the time just to be safe because the gym is a great place for temptation,” Jo finally said.
Thousands unaware of the joke were ‘appalled’ by the ‘controlling’ relationship
Thousands of people unaware of the joke were ‘appalled’ by the ‘controlling’ relationship.
‘What are you going to do after college when you have to work with the opposite sex?’ a woman asked, incredulous.
“So, you’re in a zero trust marriage,” wrote another.
“This feels more like a prison than a border,” said a third. You seem so insecure.
