I cannot quote the article I got this from, but it is way back. I think generally speaking we gain weight over time, married or unmarried.

Here is one to back up my statement: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2580938/Marriage-makes-FAT-Brides-gain-10lbs-six-months-marriage.html

One can postulate that married folks sit down and have 3 squares a day, or eat out at restaurants a lot (the case with us) or have social get togethers which always lead to drinking and eating = weight gain.

However, let's not forget: Bad habits beget more bad habits.

Lets keep this easy. Post years married : Post lbs gained

4 yrs : 5 lbs

If you have lost weight post a negative in front of the lbs, and share your secret.

I don't know if it does or not. I gained 20 pounds with my wife's first pregnancy. And 20 with the 2nd pregnancy. She's on her third right now, and if I gain 20 more I may be finding a job outside of the Army!

YES!! I didn't gain a pound from my senior year in high school in 1997/98 until I got married in 2004!! Then I started to lose weight once I got divorced...

Yes, because you get less concerned about yourself, and more on other new variables that have been added into your reality. 

I think that sounds right anyways.
