No if you haven't been around your partner stink yet, you must be dating and not married.

Obviously I wouldn't leave him if he was too ill to shower or kept farting from a bad stomach. Love is seeing each other at your worst and not caring.
But if there was persistent bad hygiene we'd be having words....

I don't like ring around stinky people. Not just my partner. I'm not asking for cologne or perfume, I'm just saying wash up with soap and water and wear deodorant, brush your teeth or get a mint.

My husband has very good hygiene. It's rare to smell anything foul from him. I don't even mind a little sweat stink for a bit after he's been outside or busy. But he always showers right away.

If he stinks because he just won't wash we would have a problem. He comes home from work in the summer and he automatically showers because he gets stinky at work. If there was some kind of health issue that cause it I would want to look into getting it fixed.

My SO always smells good but does get sweaty from time to time because he works outside in the summer months.
I'm not turned off if he's sweaty....he becomes sexier when his body is all shiny from sweat.

I have been married for 7 years and my husband never stinks. Unless I walk into the bathroom after him, but then technically that is the bathroom that stinks.

I like the way he smells when he starts to sweat. I don't like body odor or bad breath but he is really anal about that kind of stuff.
