Not-So-Lean Times

Thanks to James Gross of the Maryland Divorce Legal Crier for the heads-up on this article that appeared in TIME magazine a while back. For the most part, it is a reasonably serious examination of the effect of recession on marriages, but what clearly amused Gross was this note of optimism: "There is some good news. A study that correlated Playboy centerfolds with market conditions found that men like fuller-figured women more in lean times than in boom times. The APA study showed that when stressed, women liked to eat. Bingo!" Hmm, as a divorce lawyer I'm not sure I'd call this good news...
