Why do people get fat after marriage?Page 8 of 8    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)
i think its subliminal association when really its because of having kids. I put on an enormous amount of weight from the time I was first married til my kids were born. I bet it was almost 70lbs.

I think that when you're married you just dont go out as much, you wait in a lot for the other person, when you do go out, you eat, when you're home you just want to relax with them. Other things like bills, and house issues, and work and well you get the idea, end up taking all of any time you have for exercise.

Also many people strive for weight loss while dating to keep themselves "available". When they have found their mate, they think "why am I doing this??".

I think most people get overweight after marrige because they are no longer trying to find their mate. They are content, and also other responsibilites and obligations become a priority.

And once you have kids you now have to focus on taking care of them too.
The time you spent maintaining your health and wellness is now spent on your family members too.

Everyone should set aside time to take care of themselves. Have a little "me" time to exercise, to get a massage, to go to the beauty parlor, etc...

The only one who can do this for you is "YOU"

You really do owe it to yourself and your mate to try to maintain a certian level of health and fitness.

Just my opinion.

I don't know about anyone else, but for me it was my cooking. My sauces are always made with pure fresh cream, My mudcakes always have choclate fudge topping made with butter.

Hmmm...Pepper Steak, with creamy mushroom sauce. Now I'm feeling hungry again.

My exhusband was married before we married. He told me that when he put the ring on her finger, the air hose was inserted into her butt. (I know, not very nice ~ but I thought it was quite interesting because most all of my men friends had said that ~ just in less humorous terms.)

I am the exact opposite. I'm thinner when in a relationship than when not. I have a very small window of weight gain or loss ~ I'm really a slave to the scale. But when I'm in a relationship, I usually stay on the very thin side of things.

I guess maybe some people get comfy ~ maybe even lazy. I tend to view it that I want to look as good, if not better, than when I first met "him." But that's just me.

I'm pretty much the same size as when I graduated high school. Even being married and having 4 children, never been on a diet or anything, just was always active enough that it's never been a problem. Of course in my first marriage, I not only had the house and kids to take care of, had to mow the lawn, wash the cars and take out the gargabe, even pregnant!! Guess all that activity helped keep me from gaining weight.

It's because women have an evil plot to make their men chubby. That way they are of no interest to the other sex, effectively taken off the market, and the woman does not have to worry about the man cheating.

When the man wants to lose weight, the woman immediately thinks there must be another woman somewhere, and starts to worry.


It's just a theory.

For me, I married someone who shared none of the my interests, they all fell by the wayside, no exercise + great cook = chubby.

But it's turned around now. Lost 16lbs since my pics and still dropping. Weight Training, change in diet and eating patterns, and cardio.

The new couple feathers the nest together and makes sure there is plenty to eat. You know, either one or both is Betty Crocker or George Foreman; always impressing the other with culinary prowess. You can't have really good sex on an empty stomach, so you'd better fuel up, as well.
The unfortunate couple who happen to be broke as hell, cannot afford the decent
food and resort to "hard-times shopping" eat hot dogs, bologna, and cheap, fattening junk. The sex blows after awhile because no one wants to bang an unambitious slacker
who would rather **** for hours on end than devote that endless energy to putting in
some overtime at a job so there's more money, better food, and more money to do whatever happily marrieds do to amuse themselves as a couple.
That's why (most) newlyweds gain weight.
Love, Titus

Cause they married couch potatoes that want big home cooked meals every night and then want you to sit and be a couch potatoe with them.

LMAO ~ I don't know why people get fat after marriage. My exhusband said when he put the ring on his first wife's finger, it inserted an airhose into her butt. Not very nice, but hilarious. Me, I go the other way. Misery causes me to never eat.
