“You’ve gained weight, you look good… your relationship is definitely treating you well!”
You may have been on the receiving end of a “compliment” like this…
But, changes in one’s waistline when in a relationship is complicated!

A study found that women that are dating tend to gain around 6kgs within the five years verses 10kgs for those that are married.
