Today’s OPP is from Clay and he needs your help! Here’s what he said: 


Yi guys,

My wife has put on a lot of weight in the last couple of years. She’s at an unhealthy weight and she knows it. She’s said that she wants to lose weight and eat healthier, but then I go out to her car and find old fast food bags. It’s really frustrating for me. I feel like I’m always looking after a child that wants to eat candy and cookies before dinner. I’ve tried working out with her and it always lasts for a week and then she quits. I’m not as attracted to her as I used to be and I’m afraid it’s going to ruin our marriage if she doesn’t change. I’ve tried telling her that but she still hasn’t lost any weight. Is it time for me to leave her? Is there anything I can do to get her healthy again? –Clay


Is weight a justified reason to divorce your spouse? What advice do you have for Clay?
