Things really started going south for him when the pandemic happened. At that point in time, his fiancée’s family welcomed him with open arms and treated him like he was just a part of their family.
“I feel like I owe them a lot, and we really connected (e.g. having family movie nights),” he said. “In a lot of ways, this feels like the perfect relationship… except her weight.”
“I know it sounds superficial and that’s why I’ve been hesitating so much but over the past three years, and especially over the pandemic, she gained a considerable amount of weight.”
“She stopped trying for her outward appearance as well and resorted to just wearing the same PJs every day.”
He’s fighting to remain attracted to her, and that’s not something he’s had to struggle with before.
Due to the weight his fiancée gained, she also appears to be older than him by a decade because it changed her appearance that much.
She no longer wants to be in any photos, so he believes that she is aware of the fact that she put on a lot of weight and is traumatized by it.
He says that his fiancée’s weight has constantly been a problem for them during their whole relationship, but it was never this out of control.
“I’ve tried working out with her or going on a diet with her, but she’s always been quite resistant to it,” he continued.
He’s really not sure what to do here at all.
How would you feel in this situation?
