Marriage has a funny effect on people. On average, people tend to start gaining weight during their first year of marriage, and yet they somehow tend to gain weight slower than people who just live with each other. In other words, after the wedding, you win some and you lose some. People around the world are sharing photos that perfectly illustrate what life is like after the honeymoon is over.
