Why Do Women Get Fat After Marriage?

What Happens To Women's Figure 8 When They Get Married?

Why would a woman get married as a slim, beautiful figured lady and all of a sudden get married and blow up looking so fat? Yet when the husbands go looking for figure 8 ladies, the fat wife begins to get upset.

So what is wrong with women that they watch this happen to them?

I have followed your responses and the one thing i can say is this. If a woman cares enough about how she looks and her health, to lose weight, let her do all she can.

On the other hand, if she is doing it so her husband won't look outside, she can forget it. A dog is a dog is a dog. A man who will cheat will cheat. The Omotola you people hold up here as role model, maybe you don't know that at some point, that marriage was on the verge of collapse cuz her pilot husband could not "stay one place". Look at Halle Berry, i mean, you would think "who can cheat on Halle Berry?". But Eric Benet was sleeping with everything in skirts. You see? So ladies, do it for yourself.

And if you are obsessed with your body like i am, don't let any man tell you "i like flesh". Do exactly what you want with your body.

Please read this inspiring story about marriage:

When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, I've got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes.

Suddenly I didn't know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know what I was thinking. I want a divorce. I raised the topic calmly.

She didn't seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly, why?

I avoided her question. This made her angry. She threw away the chopsticks and shouted at me, you are not a man! That night, we didn't talk to each other. She was weeping. I knew she wanted to find out what had happened to our marriage. But I could hardly give her a satisfactory answer; she had lost my heart to Jane. I didn't love her anymore. I just pitied her!

With a deep sense of guilt, I drafted a divorce agreement which stated that she could own our house, our car, and 30% stake of my company.

She glanced at it and then tore it into pieces. The woman who had spent ten years of her life with me had become a stranger. I felt sorry for her wasted time, resources and energy but I could not take back what I had said for I loved Jane so dearly.

Finally she cried loudly in front of me, which was what I had expected to see. To me her cry was actually a kind of release. The idea of divorce which had obsessed me for several weeks seemed to be firmer and clearer now.

I've seen lots of women with close to half a dozen children that still looks 'sweet-16', so dont tell me that the calories just add up with growth. Check out those women, u'll see that most of them dont even drive themselves. They have drivers, housemaids, and lots of helpers and still dont have time to exercise their body or relax when they get stressed up. I Personally sacked my mom's driver cos her size was getting out of hand. I'll soon sack the cook too.

1 Ignorance of the health hazards associated with fatness.

2 Over Eating

3 Wrong notion about fatness - some women think that fatness is an evidence of good living

Reasons are plenty. Stress pregnancy and life in general. Metabolism slows down as you get older. But honestly if there no motivation or reason to lose weight why would a women bother. Must men would not say anything about their women weight until it get out of hand. Then theres problem and it becomes more difficult to lose weight. I say nip it in the bud in the beginning of marriage. Discuss weight and what make one appealing to the other. Then both of them work it out at the same time recognizing limitations. If I ever get married I say to my husband I didnt marry you with a pot belly so I dont expect you to grow one.

Does she work? Let her cut down on junk food, too much carbohydrate intake and eat only on fruits and vegetable. change the size of her plate,drink more water instead of soda and malt, that will really help. One more thing tease her about her weight to make her feel a little bit uncomfortable you guys might quarrel in the begining but she will give in latter to your suggestion

if as a woman you need to loose weight and you want it fast , DIVORCE your man. You will see how trim you will be in 1 month.Men make women depressed most of the time and when women are depressed or not happy they turn too food unlike men who will invades another's man country on property.

you seem to always want to "say the right thing". Always ends up coming across as unreal.

if you truly love your wife u'd notice her weight gain especially if you know she could be at risk for diabetes and cardiac related disease later in life. if you hate her you can go on pretending to be the "model" man by ignoring her weight.

Once the lady gets married she gets complacent and concludes she has the man wrapped around his fingers but again after bearing two or three kids its kinda hard to retain their normal shape so its not always their fault

both men and women put on weight after the wedding,as the woman is cooking d meals the formerly single man isnt used to eating,so the guy is wolfing it down so most men after the wedding always develop a beer belly as well,i think its all about understanding each other,eating healthy and exercising together not blaming one party

Don't different factors contribute to people gaining weight?, such as diet, life style, stress, most importantly child birth. All these factors not withstanding if people eat properly abstain from most chemical laden foods, soda, fried/junk foods I strongly believe their chances of gaining weight is much less. Of course if they can add moderate exercises to it it certainly would be helpful as well. All been said, most women don't find most of those life changing steps necessary after marriage thinking that they are now married so there is no worry about their husband with them gaining weight,  those that have children are so preoccupied with kids that they hardly find time for their own life. Also a lot of husbands do not make time to help their wives, so what the heck pack it on baby. So guys let's not blame women let's help them they are worth it and more.

Darling, just in case you haven't noticed it, this thread is quite old and I havee said my piece a long time ago.

Now back to your remark, NO OTHER LANGUAGE BUT ENGLISH! Check the regulations yourself!

Not sure if it's right to stereotype, but I'll answer the question the way I see it.

Some married ladies put on weight, because possibly, especially with full-time housewives, they become less active.

It could also be due to different eating habits.

Some put on weight becomes they are content with their lot as married women. Stress during dating can make one lose weight.

Either way, you tend to grow with your wife. If you truly love her, you wouldn't notice her weight gain. Besides, you'd probably gain weight too.

It's being secured in the true sense of the word when the marriage certificate is signed

Also it's after-glow lol or smile (not true)

All women have different body types. Our bodies react to stress, childbirth, happiness etc in different ways.

Also we tend to pick up on our partners habit, if your partner is a healthy eater , you will strive to eat healthily but if he or she is not then you wont either.

Some women will always be on the big side while some will always be slim , regardless of what they have been through.

Personally I know I can loose weight but I have just been a bit lazy with exercising and dieting.

I think it also occur in the male (husband) too, it just rest of mind, spending the rest of your life with the one you love, not searching anymore, choosing the meal your prefer to eat, not your parent dictating everything anymore.

But think adding more weight after getting married is mostly common among the women.

is simply because of child bearing,

the older one becomes (each passing year) the lower the body activity, so marriage have little to do with getting fat. that's what i think.

maybe childbirth,

I think is a natural fact that a woman who wants to get pregnant, and not that she is thinking that, her body thinks it, is putting on weight. But to say it in fact to put on weight does not mean to be fat! I am talking medically about 3-5 kilos. not more.

Why is that only in modern times it is seen as a problem? Before it was even bad for the woman to remain slim after she had gotten married because it meant that she was not being fed well in her husband's house. Now if the woman is fat after she gets married na wahala.

Anyway I still believe prevention is better than cure so:

1) donnot getting married to woman who is subjected to lots of fat in her body.

2) Make sure there's never a lot of food at home.

3) As soon as you get married give her a subscription to the nearest gym.

4) If she gets pregnant send her to a dietologist that will watch on her for the next 9 months.

6) When she delivers hire a personal trainer to get her back in shape.

If the woman doesn't bullsh!t you after the second point you'll always have a beautiful and gorgeous wife at home.

some cant just help it.

I hope you know that when you are pregnant, you are supposed to eat healthy and gain weight and while you are bosom feeding. After that you can lose all the weight you want, if not, you will have an unhealthy baby and might end up sick yourself. So think about it.
