In fact, left to our own devices, we’d be dead by 40, either from a heart attack, a diabetic coma … or drug overdose.
Because we’re social beings that require back-up from others of our species.
Notice that women who are married to fat men tend to be fat themselves.
But when one or the other gets in shape, an affair ends the relationship.
When in-shape couples marry it is implicit in their vows that they remain as close as possible to the people they were the day they said “I do.”
See, “I do” denotes certain guidelines that don’t usually appear in the marriage contracts
They are as follows:
1] “I do” agree to stay in great shape as I know the reason my husband chose to be with me is, in large part, because of my appearance, and furthermore, the fatter I get the more he feels disrespected – and resentful. Thus, we both agree that neither of us will be disrespectful of the other. The only exceptions involve illness or pregnancy.
2] Everyone knows that the moment divorce papers are filed, both parties will be back in the gym in a heartbeat in order to attract the best candidate available. This alone speaks volumes.
3] No matter what, women, in particular, are objects first, as they are well aware. They must maintain their appearance to within a stone’s throw of their original form or face the consequences, which also applies to men in some cases.
4] Fitness-minded people tend to spend the lion’s share of their time in the company of others like them. When they don’t, the results are, at the very least, suggestive.
5] Never believe that love trumps fat. It doesn’t. In fact, excessive fat is the leading cause of divorce, not money – though it’s close.
