What the hell? Not only do I feel like I need more information on how we got to that point, but also someone needs to re-take biology. FYL :/
Re-take biology? Why, because obesity has zero links to genetics? There are plenty of sites on the human genome than can be linked to the development of obesity depending on the environment. I understand that the child will not necessarily be fat because of the mother or because of anything in particular for that matter, but you're saying it as though the notion of predispositions and hereditary factors are something ridiculous.
The OP says that her future MIL's son (ie OP's fiance) got into a shouting match with his mother over how our children will be fat because of their mother. To me this is clearly referring to the OP and her fiance's future children, which means that "their mother" refers to OP.
#45 you make no sense. OP I'm sorry that your future mil is an ignorant btch, beauty comes in all shapes and sizes... some of the most beautiful women I know both inside and out are fairly large. she maybe thin and cute on the outside, but she it's obviously ugly and rotten on the inside which makes her hideous.
Are you sure your future husbands character is different? You can still back out of The deal at this point!
Fortunately, you're not marrying his mother :) Hope you're okay OP
Now, I'm no scientist. However, I will go out on a limb here and say that genetics kinda sorta probably doesn't really work that way.
Actually, there are genetic reasons for obesity. A slow metabolism would be a prime example of something that could be passed on. There are plenty of studies showing the connection between overweight/obese parent(s) and weight problems with kids. That being said, it doesn't mean that OP will be a bad mother or even that she would be the root cause of her childs weight.
A slow metabolism is not genetic. Your metabolism slows down due to aging, changes in hormones, lack of exercise, and all the shit you cram down your mouth. If you can't pronounce it, you shouldn't be eating it - follow that rule and stock up on toilet paper, your metabolism with skyrocket.
