(Telegraph) Beware! If you partner is losing weight they are probably planning to leave

People who lose weight while they’re in an apparently steady relationship are secretly preparing to dump their other halves, says a new relationships study.
The report – by sociologists in Heidelberg, Germany – says happy couples put on weight because there is less pressure on them to be attractive.
Study head Thomas Klein explained: “When you are on the look out for a new partner people try to be as thin and attractive as possible.
“However people in a relationship feel less pressure and often put on weight as they do not watch their weight so much.”
