Love this article so much! Related very hard to this especially growing up in a Latin family! My mother would make me step on a scale every week and criticize my weight because she said, "Fat girls don't find husbands." While my brother was served an extra helping in bed. Both she and my father told me in order to keep a man I needed to always smile, never criticize, always do my hair and makeup (to prevent a wandering eye) and cook and clean for him to prove my worth. Why would he leave a not fat good looking woman who cooks and cleans?
