1.
The unwritten law that your bros (male friends) should always become before hoes (female with whom you are/hoping to have a relationship with). Most used as a trump card by your bros when they feel you are becoming whipped or that your hoe is a slut and a bitch.
Jack: Scott, its poker night, remember to pick up the beer.

Scott: Sorry I can't, Erica wants me to go shopping with her. She said we might go back to her house after we got done though, I'm hoping I will get in the box.

Jack: WTF, bros before hoes, I will see you at 8.

Scott: Good call, see you at 8.

A term used between male friends when one of them has become a whipped pussy ass bitch over a girl who in most cases is a tease. when this golden rule is forgetten, the friendship and even brotherly bonds that are shared between the bros can be broken down. Remember, take care of the bros, and they'll take care of you. The high school fling will end and six monts later, no one, not even you, will remember it, but your bros will still be there, untill the day you keel over and die. In other words, unless you plan to mary her, hang with the dudes, and if you do plan to marry her, she'll understand if you say you made plans with your friends; and if she's not a bitch she'll get over it. if she gets pissy she's not worth it and most likly klingy.
Bro: Mike, were gona get shitfaced with the dudes tonite!
Mike: Sorry man, I made plans with Liniqua tonite.
Bro: Fuck you, we've been planning this all week! bros before hoes dude. don't be a bitch.
Mike: but i told her she was the reason I'm alive tonite so i can't go with you.
Bro: (proceeds to reach down Mike's pants) Oh, there they are, i was wondering where your balls were hiding. she'll get over it, lets go.

a phraise to remind a long time friend that friends should come before girlfriends ( or female friends). the phraise could be said with no intention of calling the female friend a ho, or it could be precisily what it ment.some think its jest an excuse for friends who are jelous of their friends girlfriend, but even with a girlfriend. Its allways cool to chill with your friends.

Rule of life. Friends before females. Many males who become pussywhipped will break this rule by hanging with their girlfriend over hanging with their male friends.

The most true saying ever. You put your friends, homeis, what have you (bros) before your girlfriend, wife, mistress, etc (hoes). Always. Putting hoes before bros is wrong. It breaks all forms of comradery, homie-ship, and friendship. Never put your hoes before bros. NOTE: Putting hoe-bros before hoes is exceptible. Hoe-bros are friends who you are not romantically involved with, and also not trying to bang. But still put your bros before hoe-bros.
Alex: Let's go smoke some weed!
John: Sorry man, I can't. Monique doesn't want me to do weed.
Alex: Dude, you're getting whipped! Bros before hoes!
John: Well played. Go get your lighter.

Common parallels:

1.|Bros before bitches
2.|Bros before boxes
3.|A Man code article
4.|A Bro code article
5.|Friends before females
----------------------------------------------------------------

Terms needing defined:

1. BRO | A bro in definition (if you are male) is a male you have a bond with. Most commonly referred to as friendship;friend.

2.>HOE;(HO) A woman, girlfriend, ex-girlfriend, wife or ex-wife. Any such subset.
----------------------------------------------------------------

"Bros before hoes"

1.> This term is a commonly referred to section of the "unwritten" "Man code" which refers to Men putting their friends or "brothers" before women. As it is respectful of one to treat those whose friendship was earned and is now respected above a woman who has not earned it.

----------------------------------------------------------------
Usage:

subject 1: "Hey man"
subject 2: "what's up?"
subject 1: "I was thinking about asking that girl out over

there ,but i heard she was your ex girlfriend and

I was like nah Bros before hoes man."
subject 2: "Damn straight"
subject 1: "Real men follow the man code"
subject 2: "True, True."

----------------------------------------------------------------

*Note:
Common place of this term has fallen out of usage as most men currently lack the fortitude to convey such morality and strength. I fear this term and the actions it conveys will be lost forever as chivalry, respect, and courage have in our "modern" society.
Examples of this terms meaning will be shown below.

----------------------------------------------------------------
1.: Refer to "usage" at the bottom for a common example.

2.: A woman wants her soon to be husband to lose his friends as she does not like them for petty reasons. A man would not allow this to happen.

3.: A man sees a woman that he wished to engage in conversation, as does his friend. In this instance the one with less interest or more luck in the field of women should leave the avenue as it is respectful to the other person.

4.: A man is stuck on the freeway and calls his friend to help him, he refuses because he wishes to do something with his girlfriend rather than help his friend in need. This man is not a man at all.

5.: A man cancels set plans with friends because his girlfriend wants to do something with him. This man is also not a man.

Because bros before hoes
Bros before hoes
