Because most single people (unless they have children) don't sit down to regular meals every evening....those who have someone to eat with every day are more likely to eat more than if they were alone. Besides...people get comfortable with their mate and they don't work so hard at making themselves look good.

I am not saying this is ALWAYS the case....it just seems to happen a lot.

I think its because they are tied to someone why should they care about there weight now? When your dating or single you have to look to impress but when your married why do you need to impress them.

Contentment.... and believing they are no longer in competition for a partner.

Well maybe its because there are two people cooking instead of one? Or maybe different diet habits. After my divorce, I know I have lost weight. Not only is there not as much cooking, but my ex drank alot of soda and I drink very very very very little. So that means fewer empty calories around the house.

I believe it is for a variety of reasons; one of them NOT being because they have grown lazy. Marriage offers couples a level of comfort. When you get married, you get comfortable. Comfortable with yourself & comfortable allowing someone else to see "you". External beauty, while important, shouldn't necessarily be the sole reason for marrying someone. Looks fade with time. We get older, and fluffier. It happens to everyone. Those who expect you to look the same as you did when you were in your early 20's are kidding themselves. To truly love someone, you have to be able to see them for what's on the inside. That doesn't change or fade.

I always lose weight in a relationship...
and the 5 years I spent in a marriage I was thinner than when we started dating.. and that was even after having a child..
I weigh no more today than I did 15 years ago..
I tend to gain weight when NOT in a relationship.. because I have no reason to
want to stay attractive to someone... My thoughts are.. if they don't like what they see
now.. why bother with them ?????

Rely on the only activity after the hard day work. Does it happen then? Unlikely. Too tired and full of excuses.

Only some people gain weight after getting married. Because they tend to care less about keeping themselves fit now that they've made their catch. :p

Myself, I like to make sure I stay nice and healthy.
And I've been in relationships where my girlfriend has been an amazing chef, and kept whipping up wonderful creations... and I ended up eating 3 times more than I normally would. :p
I just excercise more to make up for it.

Plus, lovemaking is an excellent way to burn off calories. ;)

* They think they don't have to work for it because they already won.
* They eat too much because dating involved dining often so eat at home together nightly.
* They can blame the weight on something else besides self-control...lack of time.
______

Why do people get fat regardless of marriage?

* They don't care about their own bodies enough to realize you only get ONE trip and ONE vessel for it.
* They can't control much in their lives except the fork so they do it.
* They don't have any idea how to eat or exercise.
* They are in denial that they are overweight or that it's even a problem.

There are many reasons why people gain weight. I know that the media likes to make us think that married people gain more weight than single people. How accurate is that? I mean, do we just notice the fat married people because in a way, we are programmed to?
I know a lot of thin married people and I know a lot of fat married people. Can we be 100% certain that one has to do with the other.
People on a whole gain weight for the same reasons.
1. They become lazy- they stop exercising
2. They are unhappy and begin to eat emotionally
3. They over eat or take up a poor diet
4. They in way, stop caring about their appearance
I do not think that marriage makes people fat. Then again, I'm skinny and not married so what do I know...

I believe it to be a number of reasons. 1. They may have always had a weight problem, but when your single, it's a higher priority to keep in shape so you can find that special someone. I have noticed that married people don't usually get fat until they have had children. There are obvious reasons why the woman will gain weight, but why won't she loose it afterwards? Probably becuase motherhood is a lot of work, and by the end of the day you don't feel like exercising at all, your whipped and beaten. so a bowl of ice cream on the couch infront of the TV feels great.

I think it has more to do with keeping in shape is a higher priority for single people than married people and definately a higher priority for parents.

There is actually a large body of data on this. I don't recall the specific source but I do remember two general points:

* People gain weight after marriage far greater than age-matched singles.
* Women gain more weight after marriage (lbs. and % of body weight).

people get fat cause they are lazy (except for medical reasons) and have low self esteem. i don't know if there is a true correlation between getting maried and putting on the weigth, but if there is, i would say it's only because they get lazy, and get sucked into their own boring routine.
