Whether we want to admit it or not, we sometimes judge people on the way they look. If we see someone who doesn't fit our idea of what being beautiful is with someone who we perceive as "way hotter," it piques our interest because we want to know why that person is with them.
He/she must be rich.
One of them got blackmailed.
He knocked her up after a one night stand.
He/she's secretly gay and in denial.
We're willing to throw out harmful theories we say to ourselves or our close friends who vocalize equally horrible thoughts. But at the end of the day, who the heck cares if the two people are truly happy?
It's a touchy subject to address, but one that body-positive Instagrammer, Jenna Kutcher wasn't afraid to broach when she discussed the size difference between her and her health coach husband, Drew.
I vow to always travel the world with you and pack so much I have to sit on my suitcase and you pray TSA doesn’t open it. ✈️ I vow to be silly, to memorize each freckle on your face, to never take waking up next to you for granted, and to still grab your butt even when you’re old and wrinkly! 👴🏻 Double tap if that’s the kind of love you want!

When people see photos of Jenna with her husband, like this one of them on a beach snapped by photographer Lindsey Roman, they message her directly, asking how she was able to "land" a dude in such good shape.
To go and outright ask someone that is a bit rude, right? Kutcher addressed the incessant question in her caption that accompanied this photo of the couple in Hawaii.
Someone once slid into my DMs and told me they couldn’t believe I had managed to land a guy as good looking as @kickingitwithkutch. I’ll be honest that I was taken aback.
Jenna admits that she occasionally becomes insecure about her own appearance when she takes a look at her man's body. I mean heck, I'm not even married to the dude and I'm starting to feel inadequate.
Part of my insecurity with my body has stemmed around being married to Mr. 6-Pack himself. Why should I, a curvy girl get him? I feel unworthy and when I write narratives in my head that because I am not thin, I don’t deserve him. 🙋🏼
However, that's not a feeling Jenna's settled for. She just relishes in the fact that Drew loves her just the way she is.
This man has embraced every curve, every dimple, pound and pimple for the last ten years and has always me reminded me that I’m beautiful even when my inner dialogue doesn’t match (and when I haven’t showered in days.) 🙌🏻
So yes, my thighs kiss, my arms are big, and my bum is bumpy but there is just more of me for him to love and I chose the man that could handle alllll that (and so much more!) ✨
Kutcher's message wasn't just an instance of her flexing for the gram, talking about how bad she is for nabbing a dude with a steaming body.
She used it as an opportunity to remind everyone that one's self-worth, regardless of if they're ripped or tubby, can't be gauged on their looks.
I am so much more than my body, so is he, and so are you. Double tap if true love doesn’t see size.
Users on Instagram praised Kutcher's message.
Of course your husband is a hunk with a 6 pack, but you on the other hand are so much more then that. Your flawless, your love for the body you live in is inspirational. Keep on keeping on. There’s always gonna be a thorn in a rose garden. - dsswitz
Same girl!! Same✌🏽 ❤️ thanks for the encouragement to know they love us for us. Not our bodies. But dang I feel that way sometimes. Not worthy. - hellolady78
Others pointed out that Drew should be so lucky as to land someone like Jenna.
Some could also ask how he landed such a beautiful woman as his wife! You don't have to be a size 2 to be beautiful like some may think. You can and are a very beautiful woman and having the confidence to accept your body as beautiful makes you even more attractive in some people's eye's. I for 1 think it's your husband who is the lucky one and not the other way around as some may believe. - bcoop71
