The four-year study of 169 newlywed couples found that husbands were more satisfied initially and wives were more satisfied over time when the fairer sex had a lower body mass index — a common measure of body fat. The study was published in the July issue of Social Psychological and Personality Science.
They were able to figure this out from only 169 couples?
I’m going to imagine that most people have an idea in their head about what is or is not attractive, and that probably changes over time. But what also changes over time are other factors that probably outweigh (heh heh) things like muffin top or cellulite.
Now, I’m all for being fit, as those readers who have seen this go from a sex blog to an exercise blog can attest. But I’m also a believer that attractiveness is not just about weight, or even weight distribution. So in the interest of presenting a responsible, opposing viewpoint, I’m just going to leave a few of these pictures lying around. Nothing much, just various women of assorted ages, all of whom not looking like anything like a stick.
