After 6 years together, I really had to put my foot down in the last 2 years. To the point where I don't want to hear him fart, poop, or pee. Shut the door! If you have to fart you more or likely need to poop! Make sure you shut the door! Lol. I'm just trying to stop him from turning into his big grumpy bear of a dad that does that stuff all day. So gross and rude!!! Plus when I know you just took a massive dump and your trying to put moves on me, I just want to ask, "Did you wipe thoroughly, and did you wash your hands?" Mystery man!!;)

We pretty much share everything. We have private thoughts, but that's about the extent of privacy.

 I think spouses should share everything.  No secrets.  But going to the bathroom in front of eachother? Ew, why?  Personally, I've never gone to the bathroom in front of someone else, and I don't burp or fart in front of my SO.  My ex H used to burp, fart, and talk about his constipation and bathroom habits all the time, and honestly it grossed me out.  I found it disgusting and a huge turn off.  Giving birth is one things, but taking a dump in front of hubby on a regular basis?  Um no, not me.

We share every thing lol I don't care if he comes in the bathroom while I'm going potty. And he has all my passwords the only time I change the password and don't have it to him is around his birthday cuz I don't want him to know what he's getting... other then that there are no secrets lol he knows when I'm pooping and what not mostly cuz I stand up and say I gotta poop lol

Quoting Charmedby3:

We share everything but the bathroom we leave each other alone when the other is in there

I don't poop in front of him if I can avoid it but if he happens to walk in, I just don't care. He got to see my insides laid on my outsides during an emergency csection plus some other fun things through are almost 9 year marriage and 12 years together as a couple. He will watch the csection again. I really am not a shy person and we are super close. There is something to be said about trying to hide a little bit of bodily functions. He will love and cherish no matter what but I would still like to keep my sex appeal as much as possible. ;-)
