Cheating on your partner after weight loss in POST-Operation Weight Loss Surgery Q&A Posted December 2, 2021 Could be that the person was slim when they met and emotional abuse led them to overeat as a comfort.

I guess seeking out surgery means you’re seeking to rectify things which aren’t working in your life and weight is perhaps just one of those things. I wonder if any research has been done on this? It would make for an interesting topic. I also wonder whether it’s the patient or the spouse who initiates the divorce? I assume it’s the patient. I might be wrong.
