Here's something sad, but true, according to a new study, a thin wife makes for a happy marriage.

Researchers, according to CBS News, found that marital satisfaction is higher for husbands when their wives are skinnier than they are. On the other hand, wives are not happier in their marriage when their husbands are thinner than they are. Instead, they are also more satisfied when they're thinner than their husbands.

"There's a lot of pressure on women in our society to achieve an often unreachably small weight," study author Andrea Meltzer said. "The great take-home message from our study is that women of any size can be happy in their relationships with the right partner. It's relative weight that matters, not absolute weight."

In other words, it's not about being super skinny, just skinnier than your spouse!
