My husband of 8 years says I'm starting to look like his mother. His mom is a heavyset woman who is blonde like me. It's not that he has a problem with obese women, he just feels like he is a teenager back at home with his mom. Every time he sees me watching a sitcom on a couch, all he sees is his dear mother.
