From the Mouths of Men: Is A Woman’s Post Baby Body Still Attractive?

November 12, 2014  |  

I’m probably going to get roasted for this but that is one of the main reasons my ex-wife and I divorced. We had our daughter first and her body bounced back then six years later we had twin boys. I pressed her so hard to get the weight off because I just wanted to see her get back to her original figure. She had loose skin on her stomach and her breasts definitely deflated and I felt that she just quit working on herself. What I didn’t realize is that she was struggling with postpartum depression. I was like ‘nah, that’s all in your head’ and kept pressing her to lose the weight but when I finally realized that I was negligent in caring for her feelings it was too late. She was disgusted with me and rightfully so, I was an asshole to her and didn’t even hold myself to the same standards. That’s almost 10 years ago now and she remarried about 2 years ago. It really hurts to see your family with someone other than you and if I could do it all over again, things would be so much different … so much different. – Anonymous, 41, Financial Advisor

    This was an awesome article! It really made my day. So many of us moms practically kill ourselves trying to snap back into a size 6, cook dinner, check homework, do our own homework, work full time, and remain sane. Some of it is completely impractical, but God has blessed us to be mothers. That within itself is beautiful.
