Looks aren’t everything, and if you’re seeking a happy long-term relationship, they probably don’t count for that much at all. If they did, then that date with the super hottie who stiffed the waitress and thought Winston Churchill was a Hollywood actor totally would have been marriage material, right?
Sure there’s got to be an attraction to your partner, but a real relationship requires so much more. Besides, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so even though this next couple might appear mismatched, they still think the world of each other.
Meet Kudi, a guy from Thailand who is so overweight his buddies nicknamed him “Ball”. He weighs a whopping 265 lbs and has been bullied about his weight his entire life. But it seems Kudi has managed to come out on top when he caught the eye of a nurse named Puwadol.
Puwadol is tiny and only weighs 97 lbs, but despite being nearly three times smaller than Kudi, she fell head over heels for him. “I know he’s not good looking and fat, but he has a kind heart,” she said. “That’s the most important thing.”
It seems it really is true love because the couple has been together for a decade. In fact, they recently had their first child together. Their daughter was born last December.
“We share everything….happiness and sadness…and that’s the main thing,” Puwadol gushed. “He’s also very caring, and even though he doesn’t like girls with short hair, he’ll still tell me I look cute even if I trim my hair.”
She added, “Many people look at us and call Ball fat, but we do not care because I am in love with the person not just what he looks like.” That’s the basis of a real relationship. You’ve got to love each other for who they are, the good and the bad, and not who they could be or who you want them to be.
Kudi and Puwadol made things official and got married last year. This is a couple who really do love each other and want to be together for life. While they have plenty of haters, they don’t let harsh words get to them and instead simply focus on loving one another.
I guess the saying really is true. Love is blind. You never know when or with whom you’re going to end up with, and chances are it probably isn’t who you thought it was going to be. However, as long as both partners are happy, that’s all that really matters. We wish Kudi and Puwadol all the best.
Kudi and Puwadol aren’t the first people to be seen by others as mismatched. Remember when Madonna dated Denis Rodman, or when Tom Hiddleston had a summer fling with Taylor Swift, or when Cher and Tom Cruise actually hooked up?
Bet you totally forgot about that last one, huh?
While none of those relationships actually worked out, plenty others have. Look at Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas still going strong!
Not to mention Game of Thrones actor Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who portrays The Mountain, recently got himself a new girl who is also a fraction of his size, prompting many onlookers to ask some pretty personal questions about their relationship. For the record, neither one was talking.
