"No Significant Others" rule?

While looking through another community, I spotted a post where someone said their group had a "strict 'No Significant Others' rule" because having couples in the group "ruins the game" or somesuch.

I don't understand this at all. Then again, my husband and I met in a tabletop RPG, we've always had at least one other couple in the group, and none of the single people have ever complained (at least, not to me or my husband).

I've never been in a group that had a "No SOs" rule, and the thought of having one boggles my mind, to be honest.

Would anyone care to opine?
