Recently someone posted a question asking if people would dump their mate for gaining a lot of weight or losing a lot of weight. Very often those who admit that they would are considered "shallow". Do you feel morally obligated to stay in a relationship or marriage with someone you are no longer attracted to?

Dashingscorpio:-) Thanks so much for choosing my answer as best answer. I enjoyed this question and all the other answers given here.
Yes I have considered that God is inclusive of both genders. After all GENESIS 1:26 states: “Let us make man in (our) image, after (our) likeness." The word (our) implies more than one.
That is a horrible Photoshopping job there. Another hour would have made a huge difference to whomever did it.
An unintentional bad haircut is one thing but an intentional radical change is another thing. If you were completely (repulsed) by your mate's appearance which they planned to maintain, would you stay? That is the real question. :-)
CalebSparks , I believe most people have "deal breakers" no matter what vows they exchanged. Each person is also responsible for their own happiness. If someone were unhappy being with you would you want them to stay? Vow or no vow?
You are looking for an easy way out to marriage. No can do. Marriage is for life. Just because people may have "deal breakers" does not make it right. You are responsible to love and be faithful to your mate.
There is no such thing as an "easy" way out of marriage. I have never known anyone who thought going through a divorce was fun/easy. Getting married is a LOT easier than getting divorced.
One man's opinion! :-)
True, it must be heart-wrenching. Still, the right thing to do would be to stay married.
The right thing to do is to keep caring about your looks, hygiene and appearance even after taking those vows. If we talk about this and someone refuses to start taking care of himself, I'd feel unimportant to him and rather leave to be happy alone.
I understand what you are saying, but still marriages are not all about FEELINGS. Marriages last because the man and woman have decided to love one another no matter what.
To me marriage, friendships and relationships are all about feelings, common sense and happiness. That's where we differ from opinion. Many married couples stick together because of commons sense while sacrificing their happiness. I hope you're happy
