bmi_couples_inside.jpgA new study conducted by the University of Tennessee revealed that women who had a lower Body Mass Index (BMI) than their husbands had happier marriages than women who weighed as much or more than their husbands did.

The study's results were gleaned from 169 couples who answered a questionnaire about their union every six months.

Initial findings made conclude that men got into relationships because they found their partners attractive. But as time went on, the questionnaires revealed that men still thought of their wives to be as attractive as when they first married.

According to Andrea Meltzer, the lead author of the study, "The great message from our study is that women of any size can be happy in their relationship with the right partner. It’s relative weight that matters, not absolute weight. It’s not that they have to be small."
