Jack Sprat's Issues

"Jack Sprat could eat no fat
His wife could eat no lean
And so betwixt the two of them
They licked the platter clean

"Jack ate all the lean,
Joan ate all the fat.
The bone they picked it clean,
Then gave it to the cat."

I mean, what he's got to deal with. In a co-dependant eating disorder with his wife. He may have had a good BMI, but she probably didn't.

Are you a Jack Sprat?
Are you a Joan Sprat?
Are you in a relationship where your spouse, partner or significant other is fat and you are thin?
Or is it the other way around?

If you're both at a healthy weight God bless you.
