Expert advice:
Unfortunately, getting married is one of the predictors of weight gain, according to researchers at Cornell University. It isn't that marriage automatically makes you fat; it's a lifestyle change — just like going away to college — that leads to a change in habits.

"Many couples find that they gain weight when they get married because they have difficulties setting boundaries," says Sirah Vettese, Ph.D., author of What Happened to the Prince I Married?

Laurie and Rob may be skipping the morning jog they took as singles in favor of cuddling in bed with coffee and croissants. They may be preparing gourmet dinners and desserts with their fun new kitchen stuff. Before they know it, they're heading to the store for bigger jeans.

What to do? Simple, really. Find exercise options you both like. Take long walks after dinner. Go out and buy low-fat cookbooks and have fun eating healthily. Most of all, don't stress about it.
