A married Oregon woman decided to stop wearing leggings to keep other men from lusting after her. Would you change your style of dress after getting into a relationship?

Would you change the way you dress to please your man? That's what one married woman in Oregon did. Veronica Partridge made the decision to stop wearing leggings and yoga pants to keep other men from being too attracted to her.

"When women wear [leggings] it creates a stronger attraction for a man to look at a woman's body and may cause them to think lustful thoughts," she wrote on her blog.

After discussing her thoughts with her husband, she found out that he is often tempted to look at other women's bodies when they wear the form fitting pants. To prevent herself from tempting other men, Partridge decided to stop wearing leggings all together.

"I made a personal vow to myself and to my husband. I will no longer wear thin, form-fitting yoga pants or leggings in public," she wrote. "Though it may be difficult to find an outfit at times, my conscience is clear and I feel I am honoring God and my husband in the way I dress."
