Is it unhealthy to hold farts?

I know everyone has flatulence. I just get extremely embarrassed doing it in front of hubby. He has no problem w/ it doing it in front of me. In fact he seems proud of it. Well according to hubby I fart at night. Should I just start farting in front of him instead of holding it in all the time? How about you, do you passed gas in front of hubby?

  • Oh yeah let it go. If I don't I get terribly uncomfortable. It is part of life.  Of course when we were first married I didn't but after 9 years and 2 kids that is the least of my worries :-)

    We've been married for 19 years and we still don't fart in front of each other...LOL I'll leave the room and fart. I fart in front of my teenage sons all the time though. I'll let one rip (when DH isn't around of course : ) and from the other room I'll here "GOOD ONE MOM".
