Re: Thinner Wife Makes Happier Marriage

It's funny really, I have a faster metabolism then wifey, so when we do let ourselves go, I end up losing weight, and she ends up gaining

So when we end up not being able to sustain our favorite positions (standing ones), I blame it on her gaining weight, and she ends up blaming it on me for losing weight. Heh, but the sex keeps us lean and strong I guess. Only time she went hardcore working out was after preggies.

And right now she's still bugging me to turn my 4 pack back into a 6 pack but I tell her that the last 2 packs are reserved for my alcohol!

Re: Thinner Wife Makes Happier Marriage

I doubt my wife ever went outside her BMI and I only ever got close to the top end never past it. For me it makes a heck of a lot of difference with attraction and desire between couples and sure when attraction and desire are there the marriage is going to be essentially happy.

^ A faster metabolism can be easily countered by spreading out meals, instead of a few big ones. Such as eating snacks every 2-3 hours. He still needs to work out though lest it just ends up as flab not muscle mass.

Re: Thinner Wife Makes Happier Marriage

The best way to keep weight off is a very active sex life. It's a lot more fun than exercise.

"Having sex three times a week burns around 7,500 calories per year. That's roughly the equivalent of jogging 75 miles, or about 1.4 miles per week, according to Healthcentral.com. The more intense the sex, the more calories burned: up to 15,000 calories annually (at a frequency of three times per week). 15,000 calories is equivalent to about 4 pounds of weight loss per year, just from having sex three times a week. Not too shabby. "

Re: Thinner Wife Makes Happier Marriage

For years I've endured a 7-21x/week sexual routine. It has kept us lean and strong, but as for my beer gut, nope, still there, I consider it my "fake 2 pack", since I still got my 4 hehe

Re: Thinner Wife Makes Happier Marriage

thinner wife = a woman more prone to be happy with her self and her self image = woman feels sexy = more sex with husband = happier husband = husband more attentive to wife = happier wife

Or could it be that we all impact our spouse in many complex, deep, subtle and unsubtle ways. They effects us, they impact us and if they didn't we really shouldn't be married.

Luckily I'm not married or fat. So it's all happiness sunshine, and sex appeal over here.

I just loved the spin on this ridiculous article, and when spun the other way, the protest cries. Interesting.

Re: Thinner Wife Makes Happier Marriage

Wow, my husbands bmi is lower then mine. He's a triathlete and races in ironmans. I'm not overweight by no means. I do watch what I eat, I'm fairly thin. I was also a runner and triathlete, but that stopped when I broke my neck nearly 4 years ago. We are a very happy couple even though my bmi is higher then my husbands!

What makes us happy is that my husband and I are extremely compatible. We don't nag, argue or tell each other what to do. We are very supportive of one another and are in love with each other. Frequent sex, flirting, holding hands, conversation, laughing/having fun and cuddling does help bringing us closer together.
