Weight Gain Is Grounds For Divorce? Couple Weighs In (VIDEO)

Is a spouse's weight gain grounds for divorce?

"We’re vain people,” one man told the magazine. "We’ve talked about it, and the only acceptable reason for weight gain is pregnancy ... Significant weight gain is grounds for divorce."

We put the question to HuffPost Divorce's Facebook and Twitter followers last week to mixed reactions on both sides of the issue. On Thursday, HuffPost Live did the same, asking viewers if a spouse's weight gain is justification to end a marriage. Watch the video above for one hilarious (and adorable!) couple's take.
