Netflix Has a Co-Watching Contract for Couples

It's a super common, and totally 1st world, couples problem: your significant other watches an episode of a show you agreed to watch together! Maybe you fell asleep, maybe you decided to watch it while they were away. Regardless, a lot of couples end up arguing about this sort of thing.

That's why Netflix has laid down some rules with a new “co-watching” contract for couples. It must be signed before you start binge watching a new series. The five rules are:

I won’t fall asleep

I won’t get distracted by my phone causing the other person to rewind because I missed something;

I won’t continue watching a show without the other person present;

I won’t talk whilst the show is on; In the event that I come across a spoiler,

I won’t share it with the other person.

Now the agreement doesn’t mention what happens IF someone break the rules. We’re guessing that each couple chooses their own punishments.
