We can all agree that there are some things that just shouldn't happen in a relationship. 

For example, many couples can agree that seeing each other use the bathroom has spelt the end of their relationships.

Research has found that there might be benefits of letting yourself go and passing wind in front of your loved ones.

The survey found that most people wait a good two to six months before they fart in front of their loved one.

A little over a fifth of the people had done the deed after a couple of weeks.

Overall, the consensus of the study was that farts are a sign of a healthy and comfortable relationship.

One respondent said, "Farts are just funny. Once you understand each other's sense of humour and you can relate on a more personal level, it becomes easier to deal with these funny natural occurrences. Bringing it to light in a relationship is just a small hurdle."
