Want to get married, lose weight

Obesity may decrease chances of marriage in young men

I just finished reading an interesting article about obesity. Researchers have found a correlation between marriage rate  in young men and obesity. Their results were that obese young-men had a more difficult time getting married than non-obese young men.

Their study indicated that men had a 50 percent less chance of being married by their 30s and 40s if they were obese. The study suggested that women may value appearance over intellectual performance or socio-economic situation.

I’m always skeptical about these types of studies, but it was still an interesting read. Regardless of the accuracy of the results, I think the story drives a strong point. Maintaining a healthy body weight provides many benefits, including help in social situations.
