    Explanation
    This statement is false because it suggests that one should help their spouse overcome weaknesses by pointing out things that need improvement.

    Spouses should give each other privacy and time alone in order to maintain a healthy relationship. This allows individuals to have personal space and engage in activities they enjoy without feeling suffocated. Giving privacy and time alone also promotes independence and self-care, which are important for individual growth and well-being. It shows respect and trust in the relationship, allowing each spouse to recharge and maintain a sense of individuality.

However, the correct answer is False.

Therefore, it is unlikely that individuals would completely ignore their spouse's weight gain.
