Obesity Meets Beauty

Finally, he did it. Manuel Uribe, the world's heaviest man, recently married his longtime girlfriend Claudia Solis in northern Mexico. Uribe, who had not left his bed for six years, got married in his hometown of Monterrey. The wedding ceremony was attended by 400 guests. The 43-year-old Mexican and his bed had to be lifted onto a crane for the wedding ceremony. Uribe now weighs 259 kg. I wish them a Happy Married Life…

I have read that somewhere. He probably is the only man who made a lot of money with his weight ! He doesn't even need to show himself in a circus !

Strange thing, but i guess if they love each other is wonderful story... I hope they'll be hapy together!

I always wonder how those who made him look like that defends themselves. It's abuse and cruelty to feed a person until they reach that size, why would anyone do that? Can they really and truly claim that it was made because of love?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder..so very true and a good philosophy to have regarding love..we all see such beauty in those we do love.

Love is indeed blind.Real life cinema!!
But my deepest revernece for the lady.It's not that humorous or entertaining in reality because she is a part of the bizarre love marriage.KUDOS!!
