What is the correlation between getting married and getting fatter? And does it equally affect men and women?April 17, 2012 6:23 pm at 6:23 pm #868140mewhoParticipant
u do your best to stay slim all your teen years and look good. the minute that ring goes on your finger you get to exhale 50 pounds.lolApril 17, 2012 6:53 pm at 6:53 pm #868141bptParticipant
I put on about 30 lbs since I got married. But to be fair, when I got married, I was barely out of my teens, so my current weight is that of an average adult.April 17, 2012 6:54 pm at 6:54 pm #868142dying of boredomParticipant

OneOfMany is correct.
But honestly, ladies, if you don’t want your husbands getting fat, just don’t feed them!April 17, 2012 11:50 pm at 11:50 pm #868145yitayningwutParticipant

I see it more in men. How about men gaining weight during wife’s pregnancy??April 18, 2012 1:14 am at 1:14 am #868147cheftzeMember
It’s typically an issue of the wife picking up additional weight with each pregnancy, and keeping it thereafter.April 18, 2012 2:49 am at 2:49 am #868148writersoulParticipant
To be fair, I’ve seen it affect both. However, one person I’m basing this on is a naturally skinny lady who is a REALLY good cook, so I probably shouldn’t judge her husband :).April 18, 2012 9:04 am at 9:04 am #868149
I myself added about 10-15 kg (circa 30 lbs) since getting married (4.5 years ago). At the moment I’m at around 85 kg (187 lbs), which is WAY too much – I’m striving to get back to at least something like 75 kg (165 lbs), which should be ok.April 18, 2012 3:29 pm at 3:29 pm #868150R.T.Participant
Depends on metabolism, stress factors, among other things.
My wife will testify that I am the same mass now as when we got married about 8 years ago.April 18, 2012 4:40 pm at 4:40 pm #868151SaysMeMember
all my siblings lost weight after marriage, some a nice amount too! Even after pregnancy, though some gained a few pounds back, they’re still much thinner than when single. One sister actually loses weight with every birth, lucky her!April 18, 2012 5:07 pm at 5:07 pm #868152HealthParticipant
Nbrg – I got fatter after marriage at least 50 lbs., but I still didn’t catch up to my wife. (:0April 18, 2012 8:03 pm at 8:03 pm #868153BaalHaboozeParticipant
It is something which bothered me why it was never taught in yeshivas, by rabbeim. Some yeshivas maybe DO point it out, but in the yeshivas where I learned, rabbeim would perhaps talk about the isurrim of over-indulgence in physical pleasures and the mitzvas asei of watching one’s health, but not in context of the mitzvos itself. It wasn’t a shmooze by itself. It wasn’t a shmooze on health, weight issues, unhealthy lifestyles, mindsets, excercise, and how gross it is to be fat. Truth is (almost) all of my rabbeim were fat! So there you go…

When you get married, you get fatter. regardless of gender.April 19, 2012 2:11 am at 2:11 am #868157squeakParticipant
No, when you get older you get fatter, regardless of gender. Obviously it is possible to avoid this natural change, but most people go along with it.April 19, 2012 2:26 am at 2:26 am #868158CsarMember
Why should someone avoid becoming heavier with age? Is it healthier to beat that natural phenomina?
