A Saudi man who suffers from obesity has finally found a good motivation to follow a strict diet and tackle his fatness. He was told by his would-be bride he must first lose weight before they get married.
The man, an engineer at a petrochemicals company in the Eastern port of Dammam, was rebuffed when he asked a local girl, in her 20s, to marry him, the Saudi Arabic language daily Okaz reported on Wednesday.
“She told him she does not mind marry him but he must first lose weight…she gave him a deadline of one year,” the paper said.
“She stipulates that he must do so by following a strict diet and doing exercises, including daily walking…the man welcomed this condition and said this made him more determined to marry her…he considered this request as the step that he had needed to reduce his weight.”
