Human beings are inherently messy and disgusting creatures. We're a hotbed of fluids, gases, and smells that remind all of us that though we may ultimately be luminous beings with beautiful hearts and souls, we are surrounded by meat and guts and mucous. Once we're comfortable enough in a relationship, we stop pretending this isn't true and do gross things in front of our partners. Sometimes we don't mean to, like when we accidentally fart on them while spooning (sorry again, sweetie). Sometimes it just sort of happens as a result of life experiences, like that time my husband got me pregnant with a 9 pound, 2 ounce baby whom I pushed out of my vagina, and he was there to see it come out. (Or when, to his horror, he accidentally saw behind the curtain during my c-section.) Oh. But it's not just us. Our partners are just as guilty of being filthy animals as we are.
Remember back in the day, when you and bae first got together and you didn't know what their burps smelled like? Those were the days, huh? I hope you enjoyed them, because now that you're committed to one another — especially if you're committed to parenthood together — those days are gone and lost forever.
They say misery loves company, so I reached out to 13 lucky women to see talk about the most hideous thing their beloved has ever done in front of them. Strap in, these are not for the faint of heart.
