Bro Code: The 7 Golden Rules

Real Talk. Here is the definitive list of how to be a good bro a.k.a The Bro Code.

  • Thou shalt not covet thy bro’s sister

No matter how insanely hot they are, this is simply a no-go area. Don't do it. Unless you're like 30 and are going to marry her.

  • Thou shalt not covet thy bro’s girlfriend

We have all experienced this scenario.  One of your bros starts seeing a girl that you would give your left nut to ride. Unfortunately, it’s not a runner.

  • Thou shalt not shag thy bro’s ex

In this instance there are a number of variables, such as how long they were going out for, how serious they were, etc. But, as a general rule, it's best to avoid this situation altogether.

  • Thou shalt have thy bro’s back

This is not to be taken in a literal sense. A more applicable title would be ‘always do what is best for your bro’. So, if he's drunk as a skunk and about to get bashed for talking smack, it's your duty to get him out of there.

  • Thou shalt be honest with thy bro

Even if it causes turbulence in the short term, honesty is always the best policy. The best example I can think of is a cheating girlfriend. In this scenario, it is your duty as a friend to tell him. Listen to the first verse of ‘How Come' by D12 for further explanation.

  • Bros before hoes

Obviously this isn’t always applicable. For example, if your girlfriend wants to see you but your bro wants to smoke a joint... or six, go to your girlfriend. However, if your bro has a legit reason for your company, employ this rule.

  • Always respect your bros

We all have that one mate who tends to get the brunt of the insults, a bit more than the rest of the group. Stick up for him every now and then. Don’t be a dick. In social situations always give your less confident mates a helping hand. Strive to help them get the ride.
