There might be several reasons for such things to happen. One of them the woman was too focused on getting married. This was all she was dreaming about. Once she got what she wanted any stimulus to stay fit and good looking is gone. Another reason might be her hard life. Many women get married, get kids, work, keep the house, cook, grow their own food. They just do not have time or means to take good care of themselves. This is when men are to blame for their condition. A good husband would make it possible for his wife to take rest and have time and means to take good care of herself. Plus, if a husband does not pay due attention to his wife and does not indicate that her look are important to him, why would she care? So, pay her some compliments. Let her know you care and give her an opportunity to get good clothes, time for herself and makeup. You’ll be amazed at the results!

Of course, this does not apply to all. However, there is some truth in it - some women dont appear to care about their looks on a daily/weekly basis but only when they are going to functions.

I dont know many many Nigerian women because I dont come across any here in N/W, UK, However, my two sisters appear to conform to letting themselves go. Within years of being in the UK they ballooned due to too much food (especially junk and big portions of red meat & meals like someone said b4, and then there is the having kids quickly and absolutely no exercise).

One of them has gone back to Nigeria and she now looks normal (not big) for her age and the one here (bless her) works hard and had 3 kids in about 4 years but is now looking really heavy and the tummy is quite wobbly.

I advised her to go for long power-walks with the baby in the buggy or get a an exercise DVD and some me-time (hubby shd help) that she can use to exercise to the DVD. 15 minutes everyday will help and can even make it fun with the kids.

Its not a peculiar problem,during relaxed conditions,the brain releases certain chemicals into the body to release the nerves and ease tension,now consider the lenghty hours your woman spend in front of a movie magic station or during work hours just sitting down at a position and not moving around?

move around you don't need much exercise the fat in 9ja woman after marriage would drop.I also learnt making do not complete their post natal treatments which is a core reason behind the unhealthy fatness and ugliness,the blood has to be cleansed and totally.

Here's what the schedule of a working mother living in Lagos looks like.

5:30 a.m, Alarm goes off

5:45 a.m, Prepare for work and kids for school

6:10 a.m, Leaves for work

6:30p.m, Leaves for home

7:30p.m, Gets home ;starts dinner

8:00p.m, Prepares kids for bed

9:00p.m, Last minute chores ; prepares for bed

10:00p.m, Sleep

Women put on weight because they are eating the same way they used to before marriage but moving less.Jogging on the roads is pretty much equal to suicide (portholes,robbers).Gyms in Lagos close at 8pm and open at 8am.Erm,which part of her life do you think she should sacrifice for a workout?I use exercise DVDs early in the morning but it is a struggle to do and is definitely not as effective as you'd like to think.It just keeps you borderline toned but the weight-struggle continues unless she cuts down her food (and that's even harder).Only stay-at-home mums can afford to exercise properly.So,sirs,until you offer to help out more so that your wives can get a little time to take care of their bodies,my advice would be, SUCK IT UP!!!

Because some women do not simply understand the importance of looking good and staying healthy.

They feel their sole aim of looking good is to attract the man. . .and so when they married. . .they feel accomplished and see no need of taking care of themselves. . .

What most of such women do not understand is. . .looking good shouldn't be done for others but for yourself. . .

Because when they get married, most husbands make their wives stay at home all day watching Africa Magic. How does that keep them fit. a lot of men are even afraid of letting their wives visit the gym, for fear that they may find some Tyson beckford-ish hombre there.

Another reason could be because they bear children. Naturally, fat is gained during pregnancy to cater for the baby's needs.

Sincerely speaking, this guy has some fears as regards getting married to a woman who after childbirth blows up.

But the truth is that when a woman is pregnant,she's placed on some special diet that would enhance her delivary.

At this period she unavoidably blows up.

Nairalanders,we all know that it's not easy for a nursing mother to leave her domestic chores for some jogging exercise.

What I'm saying in essence is, when a woman goes plumpy, it should not be attributed to laziness. It should rather be seen as one of those thing any woman should expect after series of childbirth.

These are my humble opinion.

yea 'cause they usually let go of themselves.

I mean what's the point of keeping your single lifesyle looks when ur a full time housewife. lol what are you going to be wearing make up and mini skirt to feed ur baby and clean the house? lol

I guess the best way to avoid this is if the wife actually has a life outside of the home (fancy job, socialite etc). so then she has a reason to remain youthful. otherwise, it doesn't seem worth it at all.

same for the men actually.

Its very true but its not only Women. Most Men and Women let themselves go after marriage. They spend more time eating and less time jogging. Once the ring is on both fingers and the vows are said they start not caring for themselves physically.When the physical attraction is gone in a marriage then the marriage is a dead one.To be physically attracted to one another both partners need to be in good shape.

It is simple. Too much sperm in the system after marriage.

because in Nigeria a married woman is expected to look "healthy" ie somewhat plump.

if you're married and skinny they'll abuse you and your husband and wonder if you're sick.

However, be that as it may, Nigeria needs more and affordable gyms.

In a way its true. Maybe its because these women once they get married, will now have so much to contend with: being a wife, mother,home-maker and sometimes even a career woman. Letting go of themselves is usually the easiest step for them to take. That's my take on the issue
