There are some weird religious views about sex. One such rule is the Billy Graham rule, which states a man should not be in the sole company of another woman without his wife present. The Washington Post quoted Vice President Mike Pence admitting he follows the evangelical directive.
This code of behavior became known as the "Mike Pence Rule," but the idea has circulated the Christian community for a while. Evangelical leader Reverend Billy Graham created the guidelines in the late 1940s to protect himself from the scandals and accusations that many pastors faced. Like Mike Pence, Graham refused to spend time alone with any woman.
