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.
