Can I tell by the smell of my husbands farts if he has been cheating?
This sounds silly. But my hubby has always had the same smelling fart for years, and the whole family knows he always blames the kids or the dog. But the last few days he has been working late and when he farts they smell different. Should I ask if he is cheating on me?

I’m not a relationship expert, but I was a good husband for many years until lung cancer ended it.
I do know about farts. If a fart you’re used to smelling smells different, something has changed. It’s usually something the person has eaten that is out of the ordinary. Confront your husband in a discrete way. Give him the benefit of the doubt. Tell him about the different aroma he lets out, and ask if he’s eaten any foods out of the ordinary. If he’s innocent, he can give you a straight answer. If he can’t give you a straight answer, then the new scent is the least of your worries.
I hope this helps you,
