    My wife needs to loose weight. her weight interferes with her health and I would rather put of going to her funeral for a while, After 43 years I would hate to have to break a new one in.

    You just have to do it right. Don't focus on the weight per se, but the problems that come with being over weight. I don't mean five or ten pounds "over weight" because it depends on how tall the person is, if they are muscular or have pencil stick limbs (because muscle weights more than fat. Two people of the same height could weight differently and have different body shapes due to exorcise & genetics), but if they're 20, 30, 40 lbs + then the extra weight can become a serious health issue.

    Inform them what being heavy can do to their health, offer to go on a diet with them, go for walks or lift free weights.

    Only if you need a lump on the side of your head and like sleeping alone.

    Yes, of course. I would want my significant other to be as healthy as possible, and to live a long life. From what I understand being overweight can cause health issues.

    Sonofason said: "Are you trying to encourage murder?"

    Then he blocked me. What a coward. Blocking someone usually means they are intimidated by another person's logic.

    There are Christians that believe in following god's law. You choose to obey the law of man instead of god's law. You are not a real Christian. And do you advocate the death penalty?

    The "you" of the person I fall in love with is encased in their body, in whatever shape that may be. If it was a health issue, I would try to encourage them to eat healthy and fix healthy meals for them, but I would never tell them blatantly to lose weight or I won't love you anymore.

    his weight is my business too since I have to have sex with him. And I did one time. He was angry after a while of not losing it at all that I wasn't into sex with him anymore. Would masturbate alot, but never wanted to touch him. He went from 180 to 310

    Being Over/Under weight is not healthy and if you love someone even if not a partner but a very good friend, you should be honest with them.

    But then its also depends on how it is addressed. A true partnership would allow each of the partners to express their concerns for the health and well being of one another, which also includes excess "weight" health risks. Doctors charge big $$$ to tell you that you need to lose weight if you are over weight.... If it makes you feel better... Pay your partner the 100. Co pay doctor visit and save your insurance provider some money.

    Yes. Sex is part of most mating type relationships. excess fat ruins it. it's unhealthy and gross. if your man is being a douche, tell him. if he's getting too fat, tell him.
