So here it goes, I think I'm the first man to post on this issue, so ladies please don't get offended, I'm just putting my balls and opinions on the table. I do think that a thinner wife makes a happier marriage, however, a thinner and more muscular husband would certainly have the same effect. Also, being thin is not a requirement of being in a great happy marriage, it's a bonus as far as I (a man), am concerned. Try to compare it to being a great cook, or a wildcat in the bedroom, not a requirement, just a bonus. I believe the title needs to be changed though, to thinner spouse makes a happier marriage. And lastly, if you think I'm a pig for bringing up the points i have, get used to it, as this is the mindset of most men, and people in general for that matter. Would you be happier in your marriage if your husband was thinner, a better cook, or a better lover? If you deny that you would then you are simply the extreme minority, or denying it because you consider what I'm saying offensive. That's just my two cents.
