Actress Eva Mendes said that "women who wear sweatpants around their husbands are the number one cause of divorce." What do you think of her statement?
Lol thats so stupid
She also admitted years ago that she bites her own toenails......so I'd say choose your battles, Eva.
Muahahahaha! Truth! Shut the eff up, Eva! 😉
If I could wear my sweatpants, I wouldn't care if she did. I can careless about what she wears, as long as it isn't like shorts that are basically underpants and a shirt that is like a bra.
If husbands can't handle seeing their wives in sweatpants then husbands are the leading cause of divorce. I guess being comfortable isn't our right anymore gals. 👌😉
No button or zipper makes dessert at lot easier to get to. I would say tricky belts are a much bigger problem than sexy sweatpants.
They are sweats...why does this matter
Maybe not the number one reason, but, yeah, a contributing factor.
I'm surprised at the current 82% that are ok with sweats. Different generation perhaps but sweats are ugly! Also the pajama outfits and clown suits. Ever seen anyone look good, even respectable in these things?
I wear them in the house, alone when I expect no company. However I would not even throw the trash out in them. I hate the way men look in them too.
Not at all. Sweatpants are very easy to take off
I worship my gals adorable figure. Sweat pants are an open invitation to ...
Your "expert" has it wrong.
Shes a lucky lady😉
i LOVE the way my SO looks in sweatpants! I'd be sad if she threw them all away 😢
Men who can't handle their wives wearing sweatpants in front of them are a bigger cause of divorce.
Huba Huba Huba!
My ex wore sweatpants constantly.
Phrased poorly, but couples should try to stay attractive and look attractive for each other. Treat your spouse like you did when you were dating.
This should have been what she said. Instead of blaming women.
Silly & she wasn't serious when she said it - I saw the interview.
I think she's misusing wearing sweatpants as a brush that paints a broader picture of a woman not taking time to make herself attractive to her husband. Firstly, I hate the implication that women must keep themselves looking a certain way to remain..
...'worthy' of marriage. Secondly, nice overtone of self-hatred to her statement. Attraction is more than what one wears or what one looks like.
For sure. The entire premise reminds me of 1950's sitcoms where they went to bed in neatly pressed PJ's.
I'm not saying that being attractive to your SO isn't important...it's super important. For everyone. But wearing sweatpants doesn't make you unattractive or mean you don't take pride in your appearance.
Haha Hammer. In separate beds too.
I posted an alternative to Eva's silly comment, above. She's kind of gross.
She wasn't serious
freaking piece of crap "free" wifi!!! Sorry for the multiple posts!
I just thought that you were making a really important point. Or maybe has a stuttering problem.
My looks good in sweats.
She seems to have it all figured out.
You have to take pride in yourself. I'm a housewife. I wear sweats (and other similar comfy pants) most days. They're just more practical and more comfortable for cleaning, etc. I still do something with my hair and a little bit of make-up), though.
If I cared what my wife wore we'd have gotten divorced years ago. I like for her to be comfortable,
No way. I think divorce is too complicated of an issue to be condensed down to one thing. Especially something as silly as sweat pants.
I don think she's saying it's this one thing that causes the divorce, I think it's somewhere more along the lines of these types of wives no longer caring about being attractive for their husbands.
“You can’t do sweatpants ... ladies, No. 1 cause of divorce in America. Sweatpants, no!” she said.
I live in sweat pants. It's easier then listening to Swervin telling me to go put pants on all the time. I spend 90% of my time in PJs.
Eliana, what makes you think that? In the interview, she doesn't appear humorous to me.
What's wrong w Swervin!! Off with the PJ's! Not on we the pants. Someone please tell Swervin.
@GA, her nonverbals were playful, teasing, & insincere - I saw the interview & several clip replays & it was obvious in her microexpressions, gestures, body positioning. It was playful hyperbole - she doesn't & was exaggerating her decision not to.
Ok, since I didn't see it, I'll concede to you.
The Sexy List goes as follows:
Jeans < Dress < Skirt < Sweatpants < YOGA PANTS FTW
Ps If shes right, I have nothing to worry about bc Ive known my wife for 12yrs and shes never once worn sweatpants.
She's been divorced twice, at least, and my marriage is 15 years strong so I think I'll keep my sweats, thank you.
Czar and I would have broken up a long time ago if this were the case. How ridiculous.
Oh if there were a camera in this house now...
Nothing interesting goes on, trust me. 😀
I mean me and my pants lol.
Oh! Haha 😀
Any marriage based solely on what only one partner wants or finds desirable is probably not destined to last, regardless of sweatpants.
As if this relationship will last. Well that's just crazy talk!
Oh come on, CC! Eva & Ryan 4evur! Haha.
Lyke, totally 4eva.
Side note: I would never take marriage advice from anyone in Hollywood. None of them can manage to stay married for more than a year.
Say it again, Mrs.C!
An argument =Grounds for divorce
Based in the percentage of silly votes on this poll, I'm keeping mine. I do rarely wear them but I never considered that they might just look frumpy. I'm asking my SO for his thoughts.
I've seen your pic. You could not look frumpy if you tried.
Ha, thank you.
It's clearly more of a statement of effort. Sweatpants take no effort and if it's all a person wears, then they might tend to not put forth effort in other areas.
Heidi Klum once said in an interview with Redbokk that the reason her marriage to Seal was so great was because she threw away all of her sweatpants.
Well, we all know how THAT ended up.
I don't want a man who can't accept me good, bad, and ugly.
Agree with your words.
Heidi Klum- Sweat pants. I'm getting an ugly picture here folks. ... NOT
How about on men? Is that okay? I hate them but my husband is comfy in them. I would never tell him not to wear them.
You should. Unless we are working out maybe working in the yard or we have decided to not get dressed today and are going to sit around in our PJs, watch movies and cuddle they should be off limits.
There are upon occasion some that are becoming but those are truly rare..I think if I saw one in person I might fall off my unicorn.
My husband never goes out in them. NEVER. He works extremely hard, long, crazy hours - so if he wants to wear sweatpants on a snowy day like this, I won't stop him.
Sounds like cuddles and movies then ;)
My life is ruined. I just imagined my only male action figure hero, Torfin, in sweat pants riding a Jaust! Pants flapping at full gallop. Aghast. I am aghast.
Roflmao! I promise I -never- wear sweats..a kilt on the other hand is a lot more like it ;)
Well it must be true then. I mean come on guys, she is one of our ages deep thinkers.
It's just a good thing we sold off all our sweat pant stocks. Just dodged that bullet.
Stupid as hell!! Even if that's all you wear, that's really stupid to divorce because of that. She's obviously saying "blame it on the sweatpants, ladies", because it's certainly not because how bitchy you've been throughout whole relationship.
Does Hillary wear sweat pant suits?
Leave Hillary Alone. She has Huma.
So did Bill.
Don't think my wife ever had a pair. May be that's why tomorrow will be out 51st anniversary. short pants and no pants worked!
Women can wear whatever they want around their husbands. It's nice to dress up for them sometimes but come on.
It doesn't bother me but my wife seldom wears them.
Let's take marriage advice from an unknown 40 year old spoiled rich woman that's never been married....
She's not really unknown but I agree otherwise.
To me she is.
Cowboy love. Just like Gwenyth Paltrow who said being an actress is harder work than the being an average mom.
Corny she has a clothing line. It would be funny if sweatpants were part of it.
Lol. These people have soooo rough, don't they?
I mean, a lot of the most famous actors and actresses were once struggling and working for peanuts, so I wouldn't judge them without having walked in their shoes. But that doesn't give THEM the right to judge, either.
CC - that would be hilariously ironic!
Gwen works with the little people. She tips the maid, the babysitter, the nanny on Christmas.
She's very pretentious.
True, but at least she's not Kris Jenner :)
CC- Great poll BTW. EVA gets her sweat pants handed to her in a chicken basket.
If what she means by that is: getting complacent and not trying to please your significant other as much as you did earlier in your relationship, I'd have to agree. If I'm reading too much into it and she literally means, wearing sweatpants, no.
I'm sure she will come out with a clarifying statement.
She already has & it was clear she wasn't being serious when she said it if you watched the interview.
I'd bang my wife with or without sweatpants, doesn't matter.
Probably easier without them on.
It is, but I like a challenge
... It's an interesting thing to say...
It just means that you shouldn't take your partner for granted. It's a good sentiment. And she is a total hottie
She's kidding !
I think she was using hyperbole.
I should look so bad.
I prefer the chicken with better values instead of the super model with loose values. She's got some rather unsavory viewpoints.
Thank you Okie! That made me smile :-). I needed that today 💕
I wonder what she thinks of men wearing sweatpants?
Now that's a bad look unless they are playing sports.
At Thanksgiving dinner or at a strip club?
Do men wear sweatpants in strip clubs? Why am I starting to feel itchy all of a sudden?
Only the really dirty ones do. It shows a bulge more and swings more freely. I know a guy that does that.
I like when she wears sweat pants. They're easy to take off. 😊
Yes. Elastic comes right over the hips.
That's ridiculous. I'm pretty sure Eva Mendes still looks hot in sweatpants.
I know right. I should look so "schlumpy."
A man who would divorce a woman for wearing sweatpants, only married her for her looks anyway... My wife is gorgeous no matter what she wears!
Do you think she just said that for attention, or does she legitimately think that sweatpants are a factor in most divorces?
I have no idea. I think she was being interviewed and it just came out. I am sure she will retract it. She has a clothing line. I wonder if she has any sweatpants in it.
