Yes, official parties are important, but limit their kisses?! It`s definitely not something most people would want in a relationship – especially one like Sheldon and Amy, where Amy wants to kiss every day! Luckily, like the handhold rule, it`s a rule Sheldon eventually dropped – probably when he realized he liked to kiss his girlfriend more than a Thursday a month! Unfortunately, the above notice rule for travel doesn`t just include larger vacations. Sheldon actually demands that Amy call the CDC for a (relatively) local road trip, although there is absolutely no need. The fact that this 72-hour notification rule covers even a local day trip completely kills the possibility of spontaneity and is far too controlling to belong to a healthy relationship. We`ve probably all heard of a prenuptial agreement and, interestingly, they`ve become an increasingly popular tool where a couple wants to regulate their financial arrangements in the unfortunate event that their relationship breaks down. Sheldon, of course, got Amy to sign a relationship agreement with The Big Bang Theory – but what clauses really make sense? A court is more likely to confirm the terms of an agreement if it was reached freely and without coercion. It is therefore recommended that the parties each seek independent legal advice from a family law lawyer to prove that no pressure has been exerted and that both freely enter into the agreement with full understanding of the agreed terms. The financial situation of each party should again be fully disclosed and disclosed to ensure a clear understanding. Let`s face it, what long-time couple doesn`t agree to do something like this (at least) for a birthday? And designing it in black and white only ensures that everyone knows what is expected of a great occasion. The target of many jokes, the agreement mocks many relatable complaints that many couples will suffer, so we must ask ourselves, “How can `relationship agreements` work in real relationships?” It`s clear that Shamy was only supposed to do this – but that doesn`t mean it`s always easy to be in a relationship with Sheldon Cooper.
Sheldon celebrated their formal partnership by entering into a relationship agreement. a thirty-one page document detailing each part of their obligations and responsibilities as a friend and girlfriend. And while it may seem crazy at first glance, there are actually solid rules here that more couples want to adopt. The agreement must be concluded some time before the wedding and is certainly recommended at least 28 days in advance. Again, this would eliminate the suggestion that pressure is being exerted on the other. And while we`re not debating the fact that these are three situations where holding hands can be considered necessary, the idea of not holding hands for the rest of the relationship is crazy – so much so that even Shamy has given it up. When Amy first signed him to “The Flaming Spittoon Acquisition” (S5E10), she found it very romantic. With “The Spoiler Alert Segmentation” (S06E15), she called it a ridiculous contract right after Sheldon said she couldn`t move in with him. It also appreciated the fact that the agreement was binding. The full relationship agreement allows for some cosmetic surgery, as it states that “each party cannot undergo cosmetic surgery unless it is supposed to look like a Klingon.” Which is obviously supposed to be funny – it`s a nod to Sheldon`s hatred for change and love for Star Trek. But really, there`s something deeply troubling about a binding contract that dictates what a partner should look like. If their agreement states that Amy must maintain a certain weight or hair color, or prohibit the use of makeup or contact lenses, the alarm bell would ring – and although cosmetic surgeries may not be as common as mascara, the prevention of surgery (there is no warning in case of an accident, remember) is simply too far.
In many relationships, this goes without saying. The relationship agreement states that everyone must take care of the other while they are sick, but what a terrible relationship would it be if they weren`t? Admittedly, this can mean a little more hassle for Amy, as Sheldon is so painful when he`s sick that his friends literally run around and hide so they don`t have to take care of him. .
