My Fat Spouse

Love, Self

Need to get something off your chest?

Turns out, a lot of people do. Overweight people, people who are married to overweight people. A friend introduced me to the site (, and, at first glance, I was sure it would be thread after thread of average-weight husbands and wives complaining about their, well, fat spouses.

The tag line is "It is disrespectful to willingly become unattractive to your life partner."

What it turned out to be is mildly addictive. In a fly-on-the-wall-of-the-therapist's-office kind of way. Both sides of the coin are represented, big and being married to big, and they talk about everything. Everything.

The big question is, Is this wrong? Disrespectful? Honest? What do you think?
