    paths: {
        jquery: '',

<input type="text" name="field2" data-rule="required;length(6~16)">
<input type="text" name="field3" data-rule="match(field2)">

<input type="text" name="field7"
    data-rule="required; !digits; length(6~)"

It has started to work when you use native submitting.

4. Handle submit (Optional)

$("#form1").on('valid.form', function(){
    // You can do something, then submit form by native
    // this.submit();
    // or submit form by ajax
    $.post("path/to/server", $(this).serialize())
            // do something
