The story between Matt Montgomery and Brittany Jacques defies standards of beauty and shows that true love is more significant than outward appearances. Brittany decided to put herself first and reject love because she had already been rejected and subjected to body shaming. But fate had other plans.
In August 2020, Matt and Brittany connected on Facebook. Even though Matt had a slim frame and Brittany was plus-sized, they instantly clicked. Because of her previous relationships, which had caused her to change her physical appearance, Brittany was cautious. But they couldn’t deny their chemistry, so they chose to follow their hearts.
Online trolls mocked the couple and said derogatory things about Matt’s masculinity and their relationship. They remained steadfast in their love despite the criticism and refused to let negativity interfere with their relationship. They stood together, ready to show that love knows no boundaries.
Matt was drawn to Brittany’s love of herself and body positivity. Instead of pressuring her to change, he focused on making her happy and accepted her for who she was. Conventional standards and preconceptions had no bearing on their connection. They thought of each other as soul mates.
As role models for others, Matt and Brittany are proud of their mixed-weight relationship. They believe that a person’s physical appearance shouldn’t prevent them from falling in love and that people in all shapes and sizes may find happiness. Mixed-weight relationships should be more common and welcomed, according to them.
Their story challenges the notion that love must follow a set formula and embraces the diversity of love. Love is a powerful force that, in its most pure form, overcomes social stigmas and enriches and beautifies the world.
