A new study appearing in the journal Body Image shows that women evaluated as less attractive than their husbands feel more pressure to diet and be thin than women deemed more attractive than their husbands.
As for men, however, their motivation to diet was low regardless of their wives' attractiveness or their own.
"I think this suggests a potential cost to marrying a physically attractive man", Tania Reynolds, a doctoral student at FSU who was involved in the research, told TheDCNF.
Each participant answered several questions focusing in part on their desire to diet or have a thin body. Every couple was rated on a scale of one to 10, based on their attractiveness from a full-body photograph by two independent panels.
"Our study demonstrated that women relatively low in attractiveness who were married to men relatively high in attractiveness were more likely to diet and engage in behaviors aimed at reducing their weight", Dr. Andrea Meltzer, a psychologist at FSU involved in the research, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. Understanding certain social factors which may increase a woman's risk of developing eating disorders and other health problems could lead to earlier interventions.
A new study reveals that women who are less attractive than their husbands obsess about their looks and diet - and work overtime to be thin.
It's a sorry state of affairs in the world that many women secretly suffer from eating disorders.
Researchers also found that men were rarely motivated to do the same, regardless of how attractive they considered their wife to be. "It might be helpful to identify women at risk of developing more extreme weight loss behaviors, which have been linked to other forms of psychological distress, such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse and dissatisfaction with life".
'One way to help these women is for partners to be very reaffirming, reminding them, "You're lovely". A team of undergraduate evaluators at Southern Methodist University judged facial attractiveness, while another set of evaluators at FSU rated body beauty. I love you at any weight or body type'.
"Perhaps by also focusing on the ways they are a good romantic partner outside of attractiveness and emphasising those strengths: 'I really value you because you're a kind, smart and supportive partner, '" she said.
Dr Meltzer added: 'In order to better understand women's dieting motivations, the findings of this study highlight the value of adopting an approach that focuses on a couple's relationship'. The evaluators varied in sex and ethnic makeup.
Reynolds added that women tend to overestimate how thin their husbands want them to be.
