For better or for worse, in sickness and in health, but what about for thinner or heavier?

New research shows your relationship can actually be weighing you down.

According to a new study out from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, relationships can often weigh you down.

Married men and women are both more than twice as likely to become obese, women living with a romantic partner are at a 63% risk, but men, at no increased risk.

Gold’s gym trainer Shawn Grent says he sees a lot of couples tie the knot and loosen their waistbands, but says signing up and going to a gym as a couple can be a great motivator.

He says staying fit and eating healthy will lead to a better relationship, and a better life, together.
