  • Maybe, but I think they like boobs and asses more then they dislike stretchmarks.

  • I have some stretch marks on my belly from pregnancy, and my husband acts more attracted to me than when my stomach was nice and firm. They get better as time goes on, but he never even seemed to notice them at all. :)

  • They make us the women we are! They are our battle scars of pregnancy, weight loss surgery, breastfeeding babies they are a patchwork of our lives. A good man will appreciate where we have come from, and came through, to get where we are today.

  • my boyfriend's not....mostly because he has more stretch marks than any woman i've ever seen. he's got huge muscular arms covered with huge dark red lightning bolts and there are A LOT....maybe 30+ marks per arm/shoulder. its kinda funny to me actually that i got pregnant and he got the really bad stretch marks, mine are only on my thighs

  • I feel like if your man loves, appreciates and accepts your body the way it looks they should not have problems with stretchmarks, stretchmarks I think are a beautiful mark of motherhood. A man should appreciate stretmarks more if the woman got them from carrying his child. I have deliverd 3 sons, and thankfully my stretchmarks have not been too bad but I have them and my hubby does not have any issues with them at all, or at least none that he has expressed.

  • No - even if they aren't from his biokids. I had some from my first son when I met my husband after having 3 kids. He definitely wasn't turned off by my body or anything on it!! He had never been with another woman who had kids, so it wasn't like he was used to seeing them on a woman, he just didn't take any notice at all and tells me all the time that I'm beautiful and have an incredible body (well - I'm 9 months pregnant right now, but when I'm not. Although he tells me that even now). I used BioOil and they faded mine to a level where I was comfortable wearing a bikini again, so it's not like they were that noticeable anyway but he was not turned off by them at all.

  • I'm sure some do. Men are visual creatures and so many of them wouldn't be oogling Playboy if they didn't like those "perfect" women (perfectly airbrushed btw lol). If a man really loves and respects the woman he got pregnant though he should keep his mouth shut and his thoughts in his head.

  • Nope. My belly looks like a city road map,lol. I have awful stretch marks. Yet, DH is still turned on by me.If he really loves you he will be able to look at your imperfections and find them beautiful.
