In my 20’s and 30’s I would never have dated a guy I was bigger than but now in my 40’s and DEEPLY in love I could care less. My Fiance is 5’9 and I am a wonderfully 6’1. People don’t seem to really notice because when we are together I hope all they see is how in love we are and how much we love hanging out and having fun!!! Love I guess is kinda blind….

I’m 5’6″ and about 200# and my SO is 6′ even and weighs 145 soaking wet! So I understand where you’re coming from. I keep telling myself I’m going to stop eating sweets…but then a brownie craving hits and it’s curtains for my willpower lol… 🙂

- Wedding: March 2012 - Pelican Grand Beach Resort
I’m 5’8″ and 180 (formerly 225); husband is 6’1″ and maybe 150 at the most. He’s taller, at least, but if he were to wear women’s pants, he’d be like a 6, and I’m a 12 or 14. He’s really skinny, but he eats and eats and eats.

I am… Not a huge huge difference, but enough that I’m certainly aware of it 🙂 I’m 5’5″ and around 185 right now … I was around 170 when we got married, but I have gained some significant weight… My weight is generally up and down… In 2009 I hit my max of 194 (I may have been slightly more, but that’s what I weighed at on the morning that I got my gym membership haha). In 2010, I hit my low weight of 164… but really I was sick and weighing before I had eaten… I was settled around 167-169… I would like to get back there 🙂 I don’t have a lot to lose – I’d like to lose 15-20 pounds. Life is stressful and I’m cooking regularly now… Those things apparently = weight gain for me haha 🙂
Anyways – Right now I’m 5’5″ and 185, my DH is 5’10” and 160 ish. Here’s a couple engagement pictures of us and a wedding picture of us (In both, I was about 170, not the 185 that I am now)…
But my DH never makes me feel bigger (see next picture)… He is SO sweet!

I am significantly heavier than my Fiance. I am about 260 and 5′ 10″. My Fiance is 6′ 4″ and 170 soaking wet. This isn’t the best picture.

We’re both a little big. By weight and height, SO is a little bit bigger, but I always complain about myself being larger. So, in my mind I’m bigger but I really don’t care about weight/size. I mean, we both want to lose some weight but we love each other so much and really wouldn’t care if we didn’t lose much weight. We’re cuddly together.

Looking at these posts, I think I may be the only one who is both taller and larger than my Fiance.
I am 5’11” and heis 5’10”-ish
I am a size 26 very curvy and half my height is leg, just an all aroung BIG girl, and he’s chunky, 2x t-shirts, but not a large guy.
I am not worried at all.
I feel tiny in his arms, and I’m confident our photos will be brilliant.
I’ll be sure to post some here (The wedding is only two weeks away!!!)

@Treejewel19: WOW WOW WOW. You look absolutely amazing. How did you do it? You probably get tired of hearing that. I am sorry you and Fiance are the target of so many snarky comments. One of my favorite quotes is “How people treat me is their choice. How I react is mine.” <3 <3 <3
OP: I can completely relate. I am 5’4″ and 235. Fiance is 5’9″ and 198

The dynamics of weight are so funny to me. My Fiance weighs about 165, is pure muscle, doesn’t work out and eats whatever he wants without hesitation. I wonder if stressing about food and making it such a big deal is part of the overall problem? I can see his and my attitudes towards food are very different. I’m 5’0 and over 200. I would like to get to 180 by my wedding, but I need to lose just because.

I forgot to say in my PP that I have dated so many different body types that people don’t believe me. From 6ft & 350 lbs to 5’4″ and 120 lbs. (boy, we looked funny together!) I wish I could find a pic of us for an example. It’s a good thing (for the most part) that love is blind! lol

I am 5’5 and around 300 and my hubby is 6’7 and about 240 or so. He loves my curves, my weight and me 🙂
He is an ex baller so he is nice and muscular, big chest and arms and I am short and squishy hehe so .. we have the toughness and the softness we need together 🙂

My Fiance has Crohn’s, so no matter how hard he tries, it’s very difficult for him to gain weight. Me, on the other hand… I gain weight by just looking at chocolate. He’s 6’1 and 140 lbs and I’m 5’4 210 lbs.

My Fiance and I are both on the bigger side, but I’m 15 pounds more than him 🙁

I just have to repeat, all you ladies look great and must carry your weight extremely well because the stats don’t match the pictures!
