Oh my. Yes, I had this problem for years. My hubby is a fit 165 pounds. I always felt like people were singing, "Jack Spratt could eat no fat" when I was larger.

Thank goodness it didn't seem to bother my hubby. It is a motivation to be smaller than one's spouse. How could it not be. I guess so many of us have grown up seeing the same images--the man carrying the woman over the threshold on their wedding day, the big, strong groom next to the petite bride on the top of the wedding cake and the incessant skinny cheerleaders and homecoming queens in highschool next to big football players. I wish there were signs of these images slowing--more of an emphasis on health rather than size--but it actually seems to be worsening.
