A woman with the user name Toofat2wife is asking Reddit for advice over what to do about her long-term boyfriend's refusal to propose to her until she gets 'fit.' She admits in her post that she does want to get in shape, and also emphasizes that her man has absolutely no plans to break up with her if she doesn't. But the woman, who's in her late 20s, is wondering if his unwillingness to take their relationship to the next level should really be contingent on her weight, or if her "pride is getting in the way of [her] seeing the situation clearly."
She explains that they've been together almost five years, which is no small feat. They've been living together for most of that time, and they own a house and cars together. She recently realized that she didn't want to be "led on" if marriage and children wasn't something her boyfriend could see in their future, so she did the reasonable thing and asked him.
