A woman has shared how she was left upset after her husband told her that he was no longer attracted to her because she gained weight even though she doesn’t see any problem with her appearance.
Taking to Mumsnet, the wife said that her husband has blamed their marital problems because of her weight. He even gave her an ultimatum to save their marriage.
“My husband keeps saying that ‘we’ need to lose weight to become attracted to each other again to save our relationship,” she wrote.
“For the record, I have never once said I don’t find him attractive. I still do but apparently, he doesn’t find me attractive enough to initiate s*x. He said he can’t live in a s*xless marriage,” she continued.
The woman said that they have a 4-year-old daughter and she’s the one looking after her most of the time so she doesn’t have any time for herself.
But she doesn’t see any problem with her appearance, adding that plenty of men would still find her attractive.
“Am I being selfish by not losing weight?” she asked.
People have mixed reactions, with some saying that he should also spend more time taking care of their daughter if he wants his wife to have enough time for herself, while others warned her that it’s a red flag.
One person commented: “Well, do you want to be married to someone whose ’love’ is conditioned to your weight?”
Another wrote: “If you and your husband both want you to lose weight, it wouldn’t be unreasonable of you to insist that he looks after your daughter more so you can go to the gym or go for a run.”
A third said: “Yes you are being selfish, your weight is impacting your relationship and your health. You should surely want to keep your marriage intact for you, your husband and your kids. Your health would also improve which would be beneficial too.
