My wife and I constantly row about her weight and me wanting kids

DEAR DEIDRE: TWO things cause constant rows at home: My wife’s weight and having kids.

I’ve wanted children for a long time. She’s always said not yet, maybe down the line. But she’s now 36 and still wants to focus on her career.

I am 35 and we’ve been together for eight years.

Her weight is the less pressing issue but she’s gone from a size 14 when we met to a size 22.

I tell her I’m worried about her health but she ignores me and eats huge piles of terrible food.

It’s making me less attracted to her.

DEIDRE SAYS: Your wife doesn’t sound happy and the two issues might be linked.

She is leaving it late to think of starting a family but she will know she would be advised to lose weight if she planned to get pregnant.

This isn’t just about her career.

What was her childhood like?

And her relationship with her mum? Is she comfort-eating?

Tell her your marriage is on the line unless she is willing to look more deeply into all this.

You could both gain insight through beateatingdisorders.org.uk (0808 801 0677).
