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

12 things not to do in front of your 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 pooping, 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:

I agree completely- I've been with my husband for over 10 years also and have never done those things in front of him. He'd probably walk out the door the second I did. He'd consider discussing poop very low class and its just not a part of our life. There has to be some mystery. :)

As far as the kids- we've had three, but thy were all c-sections, so I haven't had to do the ugly side of birth around him.

The only thing on your list I do is shave in front of him. We shower together 99% of the time though

Well then I must be the world's worst wife...  All of those have happened in front of my husband.  And my husband has done his fair share in front of me. 

However, after he was my caregiver for a full week of being deathly ill (and eventually admitted to the hospital), he saw things probably no man ever wants to see from his wife. So there isn't much need for modesty now.

The ugly side of birth?

once my husband saw me give birth in under 5 minutes with a 4th degree tear, him seeing me pop a zit is not really on my list of concerns, but thanks

I feel like your missing out. My husband and I have been together for almost 11 years and nothing is taboo, we still don't have a bathroom door, we both avoid the bathroom if the other is going #2, but if you need something just grab it quick. I trim his toenails and pop his zits and he loves it, he asked me to do it and I know it's supposed to be gross but I love doing it too, I think I'm the one who started it. He's seen me do everything, he was present for the birth of both our kids, one c-section and one natural birth and all that goes with it. And after all that we're still just as close as ever, it's wonderful to never be uncomftorble in any situation with your partner. And that closeness has not hurt our sex life at all! :))

I have to laugh at popping zits... forget about popping our own in front of each other... I've popped his for him.

I've also had to dig out ingrown/infected hairs from his chin. 

We know neither one is perfect and "seeing" these things from each other or even doing these things hasn't diminished our relationship, love, or level of initimacy.

It's just a part of life...and when you live with someone, you should expect that you will have to share in some things that are considered a bit gross.

I find this overall to be fairly superficial.

Wow. My babe and I did all of those just last night. I guess we are destined to fail. Or, you know, different people than you.

The only one I won't do infront of him is #1. I don't like doing that with anyone around. I don't want to hear anyone pooping so I don't want to subject anyone to my doing so.

Coles_mom- I had a csection and my honey saw just as much ugly. I couldn't walk and I couldn't even wipe myself. In fact even when I was just in labor he had to wipe me after I pooped cuz I couldn't reach and I was extremely weak. And after my csection he'd help me wipe and spray down the blood for me. Idk how you avoided that but my honey sure didn't avoid it lol. Luckily my honey doesn't mind any of that stuff. He was so good to me.
