If you want to maintain a healthy body and a healthy marriage then don’t eat fast food. Yep, that’s right – I’m sure you’ll understand what I mean shortly when I say that fast food addiction increases your chance of needing divorce lawyers.
Fast food makes you accumulate fat like nothing else. That’s because it’s loaded with unhealthy fats and sugar.
As your arteries clog up with fat your whole body begins to go down hill, but that’s not the only killer.
Consider the financial stress that it leads to. Think about this: the average fast food meal costs about seven dollars for one person, and if you supersize it that’s seven sixty.
Now multiply that by two adults and three children and you’ve got a meal cost of over thirty five dollars. Add another five dollars in running costs to get to the fast food outlet and back home and you’ve got a forty dollar meal.
Now, compare that with the alternative option of buying some healthy food ingredients from the supermarket. That might cost you, say, $15 to feed 2 adults and 3 children and perhaps 30-40 minutes to prepare the meal.
Ok, I can understand that it’s not as convenient as buying fast food, but then the outcome of habitually eating fast food isn’t that convenient either.
Firstly, you’re saving $25 or more on a meal. For a fast food addict, that could be $100 or more a week, or $5000 a year! And that’s not to mention you’re saving your health at the same time.
Financial stress is one of the biggest factors in divorce. Just imagine investing $5000 per year in your marriage and your family instead of handing it over to the fast-food giants.
What about having a $5000 yearly pay cut in return for extra annual leave time. This way you might be able to devote some real time together and not become strangers beneath the same roof.
What else could you do with another $5000 per year? Pay off the mortgage much faster? Take your spouse out to a fine restaurant every fortnight and paying a babysitter so that you can have some ‘together’ time?
So that’s it. If you want to keep away from divorce lawyers, keep away from fast food. It will be good for your body, your wallet and your marriage.
