I haven't seen any posts on this subject so far. This is a touchy subject for most people. Has anyone had problems in their marriage because one spouse has a weight problem? I am wondering how people feel about this subject.

Yes, it is touchy to discuss....but it is actually discussed fairly often on the Emotional Needs forum. It usually is a H who posts about his W's weight, but sometimes a wife.

Here's a recent sample:

How do you feel?

Do you need some help with suggestions on getting fit???

Is your husband fit?

There is a BH on GQII who had a weight problem. His wife lost sexual interest in him and had multiple affairs. He lost a lot of weight as part of plan A and is looking great now, but the damage has been done and they are currently headed for divorce.
