Divorce ahead?

I read a story on Huffington Post, where a divorce lawyer listed her “Ten Signs Your Marriage is Headed for Divorce.”

In it, she lists:

RED FLAG #9: If you spouse has gained more than 20% of his or her body weight, you may be headed for divorce. In every marriage, it is important for each spouse to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Part of keeping the passion alive is maintaining the physical presence that attracted your spouse to you in the first place. When one spouse no longer cares about his or her appearance, the other spouse can lost interest quickly. The old adage of “what it takes to get her, it takes to keep her” is actually true.

But I wonder if people gain weight BECAUSE of a stressful marriage.  We do know that when people get married, they tend to put on weight.  We also know that when couples work together at a healthy lifestyle and lose weight, great things can happen.

BTW, that’s the former Mr. Britney Spears up top.
