The Partners / Long Term Relationship Rule requires IBO couples to operate one single Independent Business (IB) together.
The rule covers two situations:
- If a married or defacto couple want to join the business, they must only form one IB together.
- If two existing IBOs begin a married or defacto relationship and neither is a Platinum IBO or above, then one of the IBs will be required to be resigned. The choice of which to resign is determined by the company in consultation with you and inconsideration of a number of facts.
If one or both IBOs are at Platinum level or above, then the businesses may, at Amway’s discretion, remain separate. The IBs will then be held in both individuals names and be referred to as Business #1 and #2.
