Traditional marriage contracts stipulate that couples take care of each other "till death do us part". Now streaming service Netflix has thrown a spanner into the works with its "co-watching contract".
A survey from 2017 revealed that 18% of streaming couples actually had a verbal argument over Netflix cheating while 4% believe that Netflix cheating is worse than having an actual affair. This caused the company to intervene by posting a co-watching contract to social media.
Some of the clauses include: "I won't asleep" and "I won't talk whilst the show is on". This caused couples to post some of their own terms and conditions. The Facebook post has already attracted more than 1900 comments and 13000 shares.
Below are just some of the comments we thought worth sharing:
