A Henan man reportedly gained nearly 20 kilograms (44 lb) in three months in order to become a 'better match' for his 130 kilogram (286 lb) bride. 

Liu Ru weighed only 63 kilos (138 lb) in July when he married Chang Qinghua in Jiaozuo, Henan province. Both sets of in-laws initially dissaproved of the match because of the massive difference in the couple's sizes (way to be supportive mom) and though Chang's parents came around Liu's parents refused to agree to the match. 

Chang managed to lose 10 kilograms (22 lb) but "her health suffered as a result" and she had to stop dieting, in order to take the load off his wife (metaphorically) Liu began overeating. "My goal is to grow to 100 kilograms," he told reporters. 

Maybe China's (recently acquired) standards of beauty, which notoriously favour extremely thin women, are starting to change. There was much disappointment in October when a woman made internet famous as "beautiful fatty" revealed that she had lost weight
