Here are some of the salient ones:

  1. 29 percent of the respondents wait anywhere between two and six months into a relationship to fart in front of their partner. Also, this is the prime period where many say their I love yous.
  2. 25.2 percent of the respondents said they wait six to 12 months, while 22 percent of them said they let it rip after just a few weeks into the relationship.
  3. Only about 7 percent of them responded saying that they’d never fart in front of their partner.

However, many people wait for certain relationship milestones before letting it rip in front of their significant others. 7 percent of them prefer to have the I love you before farting and 18.6 percent wait for the other person to fart first. Of this latter category, i.e., those who wait for their partner to fart first, 73 percent are women.

Like any relationship milestone, farting in front of your significant other is an important one, albeit a funny one. It’s obvious that farting does bring a couple closer, for it’s quite an embarrassing bodily function, and if you are comfortable doing it in front of your partner, it sure means your relationship is on solid ground.

Whether you wait for the I love you to happen or for the other person to do it first, farting does bring a couple closer.

So there you have it. Do you fart in front of your significant other? How long did you wait to fart in front of your partner? Share your ‘windy’ thoughts with us in the comments below. 😉
