How the hell do long term couples tolerate the foul odour of each other's farts? I say this because my parents who are both in there late 50s fart in front of each other (not in public of course) a lot and it doesn't seem to be causing them a major issue in there marriage.

Is it something that you learn to get used to in time?

I am so sensitive to smell that I don't think I could put up with it in a relationship?

If it's bad I of course moan at him and tell him to do it elsewhere (like the bathroom).

But mostly he doesn't have smelly ones unless he is ill. Perhaps your parents are eating foods that give them particularly foul smelling gas?

Aside from that we have both just gotten used to it being a natural human occurance. But like i said if it smells bad I moan at him

Ok, first off, I've never farted around my wife as long as I knew she was there. I take care of that in another room. And if she farts around me, I never know it. We live in a house that doesn't have a door between the bedroom and the bathroom, so we tolerate certain bodily functions. However, if someone is taking a dump, everyone else has to leave. We have to draw a line somewhere.

I did have a gf for a while who wouldn't hold back. I wasn't crazy about that, but I tolerated it.

I've also learned that sex puts pressure on a lady's colon. That can't be helped.

In all, I guess in a LTR, you experience so much body fluid and other things that a little gas is hardly an issue. I have even seen my wife's intestines outside her body and digested food moving through them (yes, she's still alive. She was having surgery and I was standing beside her the whole time). So considering that I've seen guts and placentas, changed countless dirty diapers, mopped up gallons of vomit, picked nits and bugs out of hair--need I go on? A fart is nothing to me!

In a good long term relationship, you would do anything for your partner. What's a fart compared to possibly giving your partner CPR if they had a heart attack and vomited, for example?

I like the smell of farts, so I wouldn't mind it one bit.

Ha, ha, brilliant. Who *is* a fan of farts???! !!
My bullmastiff used to do the most horrendous farts ever. Would make your parents' farts smell like spring blossom.

The foul smell comes from a poor diet, enzymes, bacteria feeding off of junk making gas. How is that foul smelling person taking a dump smell any different?

Stop eating junk that makes you stink.

It has a foul smell regardless, if someone takes on a 100% healthy diet with the goal of their farts not stinking, they're likely to be disappointed.

Yeah, I was gonna say, I eat a pretty clean diet but I still have bad smelling farts on occasion.

What you eat does effect it though, a lot of spices effect the like odor for me.

Anyways I think it's that scent-blindness thing.

Lets be honest, a lot more disgusting things go on in a relationship than smelling farts....

In most relationships, bodily fluids are exchanged: mouth to mouth (kissing), mouth to .... etc

If you think farting in front of each other is the most disgusting thing your parents are doing, I would say there is a good chance you're wrong.

I have gastrointestinal issues & fart aLOT. They don't usually smell thou thankfully but they occasionally smell bad thou. I fart around my girlfriend & she tolerates it for the most part but sometimes gets annoyed when they smell. My girlfriend doesn't fart too much but they sometimes smell bad. I try not to make her self-conscious about it & I try not to breath from my nose when it happens.

You put up with a lot when you're in a relationship with someone you love. I've tolerated farts, cleaned puke, and even cooked food for sick boyfriend while I was also sick. He got me sick.
