Recently, one woman messages BuzzFeed’s Stephen LaConte and his Hey Stephen corner for advice. Accordingly, this woman shared that her boyfriend of four years refuses to marry her until she loses weight.. This is her message below (courtesy of BuzzFeed)
Stephen, expectedly, wrote that the woman should dump her boyfriend and get out of that relationship as soon as possible.
He wrote that bodies change, and they’re meant to change. Gaining weight is normal, whether it’s due to a health condition, a change in lifestyle, or slowing metabolisms. But we should all see it as a blessing, because we all know what’s the alternative to ageing.
He added that the woman’s boyfriend shouldn’t expect her to have the same body she had when he first met her, and they’re talking about spending the rest of their lives together.
He noted “And what about the man’s body? At some point, his own shape is going to sag, expand, wrinkle and look nothing like it did when he was young. Will that be permitted? Is his body allowed to change, if yours isn’t?”
And what happens if the woman decides to have children? Pregnancy and childbirth might have effects on her body, irreversibly and forever. So, would that be acceptable to him?
Stephen belives that dangling marriage over her head like some prize is very, very wrong, which could do her significant harm. Therefor, the woman should get out of that relationship as soon as possible.
