I recently watched a video called, “Breaking the Barrier”, which examines at which point in a relationship it becomes ok to fart in front of your lover. Although, obviously intended to be humorous, it got me thinking about how couples degenerate from being polite and trying to impress each other when they first begin dating, to taking each other for granted and treating each other disrespectfully. This disrespect, commonly manifested as the belief that it’s ok to fart in front of your lover, could be one of the reasons why our divorce rates are so high in the U.S. These thoughts prompted me to write a blog post called, “Keeping the Romance Alive: It’s Not Ok to Fart in Front of Your Lover” on Dating Disasters and Delights. I know many people think that it’s actually a sign of relationship success that you have reached the point where you feel it’s ok to fart in front of your lover, but, I think that this level of comfort is quite dangerous and may precipitate an eventual break-up.

"Over drinks at a bar my date revealed many interesting details about himself. He used to live on 'the streets.' He claimed to have 'beat Spina Bifida.' He had had a fiancé in Japan who was open to him dating women while he was in the States. After all those amazing revelations I let him know our relationship would not be romantic. As we walked out of the bar he appeared to be suffering from some sort of stomach cramp. He told me he suffered from severe IBS and desperately needed a private bathroom. I have family members who suffer from Crohn's disease so I felt very sympathetic to his situation. I offered to let him use the bathroom in my apartment. After he had finished using the bathroom, he says, 'I know you said we could just be friends and that's fine. But, I was wondering if I could just watch you pee before I leave. I only want to watch.' P.S. — I did not let him watch me pee." -Miranda, 33
