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?

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. πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜‰

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.

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.

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.

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..

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.

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.

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.

@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.

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.
