    We’re WAY too comfortable with eachother lol. We’ll just straight up fart on the other one and then laugh and laugh.

    Who cares if your farts stink, they’re farts!

    We like to have a smell contest to see who’s smells more… And we both love garlic so on nights we eat a bunch of garlic… Yeah…

    Lmao.  I do the most but DH is once in a while.  I don’t think I smell too bad.  Sometimes I fart and he doesnt even smell it. It definitely doesn’t clear a room but it also depends on what you eat.  If I eat ice cream (dairy) he prepares for a lot of gas.  Otherwise it’s not too bad.

    Yea I’ll never be that comfortable with FI. Its just not my thing. He tends to involuntarily let a few loose now and then but blames them on tiny invisible elephants. 😩 Whatever dear. I go to the restroom for this issue. Depending on what I ate its either option 1 or 2 but still I can’t bring myself to purposely cut the cheese around him. 😅

    I’m more embarrassed by the frequency and the noise but my farts aren’t super stinky haha. I don’t hold back when we are at home and DH still makes fun of me.

    I’m definitely the fart-ier one! We might have held it in at the start of the relationship but 4 years later we just fart and laugh.

    This is my favorite thread I’ve ever seen. We take pride in our farts and have been farting in front of each other with glee for a long time… that being said, I think he’s stinkier than me (but he’d probably disagree). We also sometimes purposefully try to fart on each other. That’s real love, man.

    kwellabella :  the husband and I have been farting around each other for years now. We get a lot of laughs out of it! I have the potential to clear a room, but I actually recently figured out that staying properly hydrated helps me IMMENSELY. It turns out that water is key for digestion, and if you’re chronically dehydrated, your digestion slows and your gut bacteria get to spend too much quality time breaking down foods. Or something (I’m no gastrointerologist). I’ve been using a tracking app, and if I get 100oz a day, I’m in odorless territory.

    Soo yes, I have serious room-clearing potential. If I’m dehydrated for a few days and eating a lot of fiber (I’m looking at you, chia seeds), the tiniest slip can be toxic. But if I’m drinking enough water, I have much less gas, and it’s odorless.

    In sum: try to figure out what’s causing it! But don’t be embarassed. I think it’s important to be able to break wind in peace at home. Also, I’m totally immature and enjoy the shock value of truly profound farts (in private w/ my husband, anyway!).

    We refuse to do it in front of each other unless one is sick and cannot help it. Both of us prefer it that way

    Oh there are no secrets about our farts. When we first started dating he said I would vent the blankets if I farted in my sleep. I, and our dog know when he wakes up because he lets an epic fart out once he’s conscious, every.morning. It’ss hard to say whose are stinkier, I think we take turns on that, but his have far more “bass”.

    So we have been together for 14 years and up until about 2 months ago, I never passed gas in front of DH. 

    But now I am pregnant and way more gassy than usual…I am way too lazy to leave the room and it’s hard to keep it quiet. I have lost all sense of decency and I just let it out, lol. Neither of us acknowledge and go about things as usual. 🙂

    Lol, in my case it’s totally dependent on what I eat so sometimes it’s fine, sometimes it’s god-awful.  And now that I’m knocked up they catch me off guard at times.  At least silent-but-deadly can be blamed on the dog.  Husband just ignores it though – I swear he’s incapable himself.  I’ve never heard or smelled a thing in the 10 years we’ve been together.

    I by far am gassier than him.  I have a chronic GI disorder, and depending on what I eat, I can be AWFUL.  It’s not romantic and I know that, I just fart a LOT more than your typical person.  Holding it in isn’t healthy.

    kwellabella :  Yeah I fart around him all the time, especially being pregnant.  Sometimes I can’t help it.
