Have a farting contest with him. I typically win thanks to celiac disease.

@kerplunk00:  I don’t pass gas in front of Mr. H if I can help it. I honestly don’t do it in front of anyone, and unless it’s an accident I don’t burp in front of people either. It happens every now and then when it’s kind of…involuntary, but I guess I’m saying I don’t do it just to do it. He doesn’t do it in front of me either; we come from traditional upbringings where it was bad manners. BUT I also believe that what works in one home is not what works in another. I know we are in the minority here; most people go right ahead and do it in front of their SO, and honestly if that’s what works for them I encourage it. Differen’t strokes for different folks, man.

 

As for situations like you described–I call it water cooler tummy because it always feels like bubbles in a water cooler coming up; ugh–I’d say it’s perfectly fine to just pass gas and say excuse me. I’m sure your man has farted once or 3000 times in his life. He poops too, and I bet he’d be just fine if you did that at his place also. 🙂 

 

If it makes you feel better, I used to get anxiety if I peed too loudly, because *gasp* he might hear me and he would know that I have to urinate on occasion! Lol. The best thing to do is just remember that he knows you have bodily functions, and so does he. We’re all human.

@kerplunk00:  Not a big deal! If it just happens, we laugh about it! Life is way to short to worry about a little gas! It happens to everyone, holding it in is not worth making yourself be in physical pain!

My husband and I have fart wars. It’s self defense, really. Biochemical warfare.

Maybe it’s just a comfort thing — Farts don’t phase me. I really don’t care. Your significant other is going to see you through a lot of compromising positions — Child birth, ugly crying, when you trip and bang your chin on the table, when you’re sick and vomiting your brains out. Farting should be the least of your worries.

Everyone farts, everyone poops. When you love someone you love all of them…even the icky bits.

We’ve been together for four and a half years and I have yet to fart in front of him. Actually, that’s not true. I’m a master of control and they NEVER make a sound. Sorry if it’s Too Much Information, but I feel strongly that:

1) I don’t want him to EVER hear or smell those. Ever. So if there will be a) a sound or b) a smell, I will wait til he’s gone or go in the other room.

2) There are just some things we don’t need to share. 

He feels quite a bit differently and broke that barrier on our wedding night.

Just fart! If a man can’t handle a woman with gas, I am at a loss for words. Everybody farts… sometimes!

Thanks to a perscription I got switched to a few months ago there is always gas in my tummy if I haven’t eaten for a bit which basically means I can burp on command (also not on command when it builds up too much). Fiance and I have taken to burping at each other whenever one of us burps. His may be louder, but I usually manage to get the last burp in 😛

We are also comfortable farting around each other, sometimes we comment on it but we’re not really embarassed. Apparently I’m a stealthy farter and Fiance likes to point it out when he actually notices that I’ve farted. On my last period I got super gassy and could not stop audibly farting all night long. I apologized to Fiance and he said ‘that’s ok, I’m just going to have to call you Jericho’ (Jericho is a horse that my co-rider rode at lessons with me. Every time she took a jump he farted. We always joked that he was jet-propelled).

I just do it when he’s out of the room or when he’s asleep. Dealing with bodily functions when you live with someone is something that you get used to (: We like to keep the mystery alive, but sometimes something slips out and we just kind of ignore it or if it was super obvious we laugh about it and move on. Everybody does it and it’s not something to be ashamed about, but I also don’t think it’s necessary to share that part of your life 😉

we’ve been letting them rip in front of each other after we were dating for 6 months.

i let him fart first in front of me, then it was fair game after that.

Having gas isn’t a crime. It’s no mystery that if I eat certain foods, it’ll make me have gas–same goes for Fiance. Granted, his usually sound and smell worse than mine, but it doesn’t matter. Either we laugh it off, groan and spray the air freshener, or pretend it didn’t happen. No big deal.

@kerplunk00:  omg this makes me feel like such a weirdo. I have been dating my SO for 10 years!! and we have never done it in front of each other…only once by accident but never again!! SO was thought by his mother to be respectful towards me and to never do it in front of me! lol but i dont know how we are going to do once we are married. I just think its funny that we have dated for so long n we are not used to it.
