How to salvage your marriage if your wife is overweight?

My guess is that in very few cases, if in any cases at all, is it just that the overweight person is too in love with food to stop overeating and too lazy to start exercising. Your wife is fat. She is also more than likely unhappy. Perhaps by being more concerned with her mental and emotional health you might be able to salvage your marriage just by helping her to restore her desire to look and feel her best. At the point where someone is so fat their spouse wants to leave them, it would seem to me that they have long stopped caring about their appearance. Help your wife learn to love herself and believe she has worth and value as a person first and foremost. Of course that could present a problem if you believe her worth and value is determined by how she looks.  Only the most shallow of women want to be loved for how they look. The rest want to be loved for who they are, and when a woman knows her man only loves her as long as she stays a certain size it undermines her sense of self and diminishes her self worth in a major way. She’s not likely to feel motivated to lose weight to get you to love her more. Your love won’t mean anything to her if she knows it gets weaker or stronger depending on how much she weighs.

Hi, though my real name is not Soliel, it is the name I have chosen to represent myself here. I am a freelance writing wife and mother who is in no way an expert in the subject of love and marriage.

Nothing I write is meant to be presented as if coming from an expert source. I have no professional qualifications or specialized knowledge in marriage and relationship fields of study. I am not a marriage counselor nor do I have any background in counseling. I present my thoughts much in the same light as a mother, sister or friend might. I only hope to help contribute to the ongoing conversation about love and marriage relationships and what makes them succeed or fail. If you disagree with something I write you are welcome to share your thoughts by leaving a comment.
