(Newser) – Inspired by Angelina Jolie’s rumored decision to adopt a seventh child without Brad Pitt’s consent, Kate Torgovnick of The Frisky runs down 20 things you should never do without talking to your partner first:

  • Get a vasectomy (here's looking at you, Spencer Pratt).
  • Start dating someone else.
  • "Throw out all the boxes of frozen Girl Scout cookies in the freezer"—or, might we add, eating them.

  • "Invest your joint savings in a combination fried chicken and sushi restaurant."
  • Erase all the shows saved on your DVR.
  • Buy a new car or, worse, a new house.
  • Spread your joyous pregnancy news.
  • Quit your job.
  • "Adopt a puppy/kitten/ferret."
  • Tattoo their name on you.
  • Become a Scientologist.
