As a young man watches his slim fiancee approvingly from a distance, an old man shatters his reverie. "Better look now," he warns. "After the first kid, she's gonna blow up like a balloon."Thus did the 1989 movie "True Love" immortalize the stereotype that after marriage, and especially after having children, only women, not men, gain weight. But a new study suggests that exactly the opposite may be true: Marriage, pure and simple, causes men to put on weight.When researchers at Cornell University analyzed weight and marriage data from 3,025 men and women, they found that both married men and women tend to be heavier than their single counterparts.

My 11-year-old son is always complaining his tummy hurts. Can a child his age have an ulcer?Ulcers are much rarer in children than in adults, but they do occur. An ulcer is a deep sore in the lining (called mucosa) of the stomach or upper intestine. The most common place for an ulcer is in the duodenum, the first segment of the intestine.Most children who get ulcers have some other chronic health problem that weakens the system or requires medicine that can promote the formation of ulcers as an unfortunate side effect.

D'Anna is the office manager for a Lutherville plastic surgeon, and, as a mother, she sympathizes with the patients. She just got her own flat tummy back last year. Her boss, Dr. Ronald H. Schuster, had bought a machine that aimed to zap muffin tops and love handles via low temperatures. He was looking for volunteers on the staff before he rolled out the service to patients.

Are there any surgical treatments for obesity?Over the years a number of surgical procedures have been used to treat obesity either by restricting the intake of food or by reducing its absorption from the intestine.One of the simplest methods is to wire the jaws shut so that the diet is limited to liquids taken through a straw. Although this approach generally leads to weight loss (the author of this column managed to gain weight when his jaws were wired shut for a broken jaw), weight is usually regained as soon as the wires are removed.
