Marriage trouble over weight issues?

I haven't seen any messages on this issue but I know there are people out there dealing with this! My husband and I are "on the brink" over a few issues, weight being the main one! He is an amazing guy and is very kind about this but it is obvious that things are not the way they were or the way we both would like! We are basically living as best freinds! We are coming up on our 10th wedding anniversary and have 2 beautiful daughters! I can undertand where he is coming from and need to fix our relationship! We also have other issues of trust, money and stuff (but don't we all) and I believe that will all be worked out! Anyways if there are others like me, let's talk!

What exactly is your question? Is your husband not attracted any more? What is he saying to you about your weight? Hurtful things?

You didn't give much info. Is he complaining about your weight issues or are you complaining about his? And what are the complaints? I assume since you say you live like roommates that sex and intimacy is also an issue?

It would also help to know how "big" you actually are as well as how he's treating you aside from the lack of sex. I'm not implying that if you're 300 lbs you deserve to be treated like a nonsexual being - not at all! - but if he's creating an issue because you're a size 14 instead of a size 6, that's a whole different dynamic.

marriage trouble

From experience and truth, the real issues here have to deal with character and heart matters. Things will always remain the same or get worse unless our attitude changes. Meaning, be true to yourself. May love motivate you to love yourself and to work on yourself. These changes will be challenging but you can do it. Then the changes will reflect positively on your relationship with your husband. Don't give up. The weight, trust, financial disagreements are only symptoms of the root problem. Communicate to one another and take turns listening to each other. Both of you will eventually need to be willing to learn and grow in the relationship, but with a giving heart to one another.

I hope this wasn't confusing.

in your post you say " issues of trust, money and stuff (but don't we all) "

I have been married for over 7 years and I would say NO not everyone has issues with these, trust and Money are big issues if you are fighting over that it is not normal.
