A happy marriage is a fat free marriage
The secret to maintaining a happy marriage is based on the wife remaining slimmer than her husband, according to a new study.
Researchers claim both partners are more content if the woman has a lower Body Mass Index (BMI) than the man.
A four-year study found that relationships lasted longer if the woman felt more attractive and desirable than her other half.
But relationship experts have already dismissed the findings, insisting that size is not necessarily a key factor in a husband finding his wife attractive.
The study at the University of Tennessee selected 169 married couples under the age of 35 and asked them to fill in questionnaires every six months for four years.
The findings discovered that men with a higher BMI than their wives were happier at the start of their marriage and stayed that way.
This study has to be good news for fat fighting clubs…dust anyone?
