Savage Love My Fat Spouse

Those folks upset by my recent comments concerning a partner’s weight gain are going to blow their stacks when they get a load of this website. From My Fat Spouse:
If you have been watching the news lately, I am sure that you have heard of the “Obesity Epidemic.” Marriages are not immune to the effects of this issue. This site will focus on the situation where one partner becomes, or remains obese and the other spouse maintains a thinner physique, or succeeds in becoming thinner.
It is unrealistic to expect this situation to not annoy the less fat partner. The effects of this on a marriage are subtle and not so subtle. If you hold the notion that love should be blind, and that romance should be judged by the “person on the inside,” then go to the thousands of other forums and websites that believe the same way. Excuse making for not exercising and not eating correctly is not acceptable here. Politically Correct guilt trips should be left at the door.
The site’s tagline—“it is disrespectful to become unattractive to your life partner”—echoes my advice for HARD.
