Thinner Wife Makes Happier Marriage : Discovery News

First off, I think 170 couples wouldn't quite be enough "research" to support this. Also, some of the comments at the bottom are seriously crazy!! So harsh!! What do you think?!

Could it be the other way around? Maybe a happier marriage makes for a thinner wife.

This article is somewhat disturbing. It also makes me wonder how much money was spent on this research. It's funny how much debt the U.S. is in, yet facilities feel it's necessary to perform worthless studies such as this one.

These women might be thinner and happier because their husbands have money can afford to give them healthier food, health club membership, liposuction just to name a few. They are also not stressed out which can cause many other issues.

Do they ever have studies about thinner husbands? :mad:

And, I agree....170 is a very small n.

What I think is, we DON'T need another thread about fat. Ever.

Ditto, ditto, ditto.

Huh. Give me his statistical numbers and I bet I can play with them and skew them to say something different.

This is poppycock!

And the wives haven't had a major health issue/diagnosis, nor have they been depressed, or been through menopause!

This site is so enlightening. What I've learned her in the past couple weeks is amazing!

Because I'm overweight...or, okay...FAT, I

1. Can not be a good nurse.

2. Have an unhappy marriage.

I guess all that extra cellulite I'm carrying around is causing a sort of euphoria. Being nominated for and receiving several annual awards over the years, receiving rave reviews from my coworkers and families and lastly, but most importantly, an insanely amazing near 14 years of happy marriage is giving me the wrong impression, I see.

I don't know about you all, but I know a few couples that could be just a smidge happier if the HUSBAND were a bit more fit too!!! Not nice to say, but no worse than the article for sure.

You can say THAT again! At 60, my hubby has gotten to be just like me---fat, floppy, and fluffy---and sometimes I really miss the stud I married! But I can hardly ask him to do what I'm not willing to do myself, so we simply co-exist peacefully for the most part, reminiscing often about our younger (and fitter) days, and being grateful for all these years of shared history. :redpinkhe
