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