When you're committed to someone, like really, seriously, forever and for always 'til-death-do-you-part committed to someone, your relationship is a beautiful thing.

It's also a really gross thing, because once couples get to that "in it for the long haul" place, there is basically nothing that's too disgusting or off limits for you two.

1. Passing gas in front of each other

Long gone are the days where you use to hold in your farts lest you offend his/her nostrils. Now, you let 'em rip, and often your significant other congratulates you on the sound/smell.

2. Smell each other's laundry to check if it's clean or dirty

Hey, if your partner isn't around to tell you if this pair of underwear on the floor is clean or dirty, you gotta give it a whiff. 

3. Changing tampons in front of the other

Usually this is reserved for alone time in the bathroom, but after so many times of the month, your S.O. just doesn't care anymore that you're pulling a cotton log out of there while they are brushing their teeth.

4. Check each other's breath

"Hey, I just ate sardines smothered in garlic aioli and topped with onion rings. Does my breath smell like death or just near-death?"

5. Share a toothbrush

Someone forgot to pack their toothbrush on your annual trip to Vegas. Buy a new one? Nah, splitsies!

6. Kissing first thing in the morning before brushing your teeth

Maybe you used to be like Elliot from Scrubs and you did shots of mouthwash in the morning before kissing. Not anymore. If your breath is disgusting and your lover wants a kiss, they're going to get it, rotten dragon breath or no rotten dragon breath.

7. Pick each other's pimples

If your find popping your S.O.'s pimples oddly satisfying, you are not alone.

8. Let your leg hair grow and grow

You used to keep a clean ship (so to speak) when you first started dating, but shaving is such a hassle sometimes and if your beloved doesn't care...let that s--t spring up like May flowers!

9. Taking care of each other's eye boogers

Who else is going to tell them that they have gunk in their eye? And since you told them, might as well go in there get it yourself...

10. Talking about your poop after going to the bathroom

Some couples even send each other photos of their bowel movements to brag about its size, shape and whatnot. That's not gross. That's monogamy!
