5 Things No Woman Should EVER Do in Front of Her Husband

Posted by Sasha Brown-Worsham on January 15, 2013 

pooping in front of husbandOne of the best things about marriage is the comfort level you get to with a person who knows you both inside and out. After 10 years of marriage, I can officially say that I have done most things in front of my husband, including shower, pee, have babies, laugh until soda came out of my nose, and sleep. But there are still a few things I will never do in front of him.

It's not that we aren't intimate. We are. Deeply. But I am someone who believes strongly in the power of distance. It makes the heart grow fonder, after all. Some things are just meant to stay private. Forever.

Like popping, for instance. There is a discussion right now on CafeMom about this, and some are in favor of pooping in front of their love, while others aren't. For me, this is a massive no-no. Here are five things I would simply never do in front of my spouse:

1.) Poop: Sorry, ladies. I know some of you disagree with me and think the family who poops together stays together, but no. Not me. Not ever. After 12 years with the same man, I can officially say I still don't even TALK about poop with him. I don't want to hear about his and I don't want him to ask him about mine. Better to keep it all private and pretend it doesn't happen. Some mystery isn't a bad thing.

2.) Pop a zit: This is just a gross thing and something no one needs to see. I don't want to see him do it and I sure as hell don't want him to see me do it. If the bathroom door is locked, you can wait outside, honey!

3.) Pick your nose: I dry heave at the thought. We all know it has to happen sometimes. But just keep that stuff to yourself. No one's fingers belong in anyone's noses. The end.

4.) Remove hair: This means everything. I don't shave, wax, tweeze, or anything else in front of my man. It's just how I roll.

5.) Cut your toenails: I don't know why, but this really skeeves me out. I don't want to see him doing it and I will get my pedicures at the salon FAR from his prying eyes.

I agree with your list. To me, mystery especially after 12 years of marriage is good a thing, TMI is bad. Same thing with burping. If you can't help it and comes out that's one thing, but to do it at any given time is just gross. My DH are totally on the same page about this. To each his own.

I can honestly say I don't do any of those things in front of my DH. The poop thing freaks me out. My six year old wont even let us in the bathroom when she is pooping.

I do all of those things in front of him. The way I see it is if he can see me do the nastiest things and still be attracted to me then that is true love right there.

It's not that it's a big deal...but pooping, farting, poping pimples or picking your nose in front of ANYONE isn't lady like and isn't attractive at all.  And there is nothing that is so important it can't wait until I am out of the bathroom and done doing my business.  It is disgusting and not classy at all.  As far as clipping your nails or removing hair, that's whatever.
