    Why do unattractive/overweight men on TV and the movies have super hot wives or girlfriends?

    For example, I saw the movie Couples Retreat last night and all of the women were gorgeous. The men were average at best. Most were overweight or obese. It's very rare to see this situation in reverse, hot men with unattractive women.

    Really? Quite frankly, what attracts most people to others in the LONG run isn't based on looks, but personality from all I've seen and lived in real life.

    I did see a study that showed how people tend to seek others they view as the same attractiveness as themselves (ie ugly, average, good looking, hot, etc), which was very interesting.

    On the other hand, your comment makes a valid point as in TV-land and Hollywood, the focus is so much on the "hot chicks", and it doesn't seem ok to be an "average" or "good-looking" woman in Hollywood...you have to be bobacious. Men, on the other hand, don't follow the same rules...funny, eh?

    Because the majority of screenwriters turning out those pieces are men, and the stories play to their fantasies.

    Yes, this is usually the case with overweight men on TV. Television is fantasy. Real life is real. The problem arises when the audiences try to imitate the media, thereby creating a pandemic of social problems. Many, many men harp about what the ideal woman should look like. They also do not mind insulting obese women when so many of them (men) are obese. However, men do not normally put themselves down for being fat or unattractive. They think that women should take them as they are and be glad to have them. I do not blame them for that because women should NOT permit society's haters to intimidate them because they are obese or less than what many think is ideal.

    Women do everything under the sun, including mutilating their bodies through crazy surgeries, to make themselves worthh a man's attention. Men do very little to make themselves attractive aside from normal grooming and dressing.

    All in all, men tend to have normal views about themselves. They tend to love themselves and expect women to love them also. Women are the ones with the most problems about their normal bodies. If they think that their breasts are too small or large, they get ready for surgery. Ridiculous! Women should make every effort to stay healthy, stop the mutilations unless they are medically necessary, and ignore immature men who would marry a devil wrapped in Barbie Doll skin just because she is pretty. Many women do not know how to choose either. The proof is in all of these shocking divorces and abandonments. It is not always easy to find real people with real minds. Fantasy is the norm.

    As for the fat, unattractive movie stars with the beautiful wives, that is only an example of the norm. As most men, the man behind the screen, the screen writers, has confidence and high self-esteem as most men. They would never intentionally write anything that would not sell. They know what society would approve. Women just need to step up on their self-esteem and stop cutting and remaking themselves. I admire women who can lose weight the sensible way, but many men do not know that obesity is in some individuals DNA. If they do not like an obese woman, they should be decent enough to keep walking, not downsize.
