I was watching a program on Discovery Chanel where one woman stays home and eats non-stop while her enabling husband works to feed her. She wants to become super morbidly obese to immobility. I found this rather shocking. Why would someone want to become super morbidly obese knowing the health risks and drawbacks associated with this condition?

I think there is a lot of truth in your answer.
Thanks Patty. I love your perspective, makes perfect sense. For the most part, the human mind is pretty mysterious.
I recall the Russian couch dweller's name - Oblomov, also the name of the novel. He felt if he stayed in bed, or on a chair/sofa with both his doors open, everyone would come to him; they did. The story satirized 19th nobility as lazy/controlling.
Good points for thought. There are so many reasons for this behavior that only someone in that situation would be able to explain their motive for our understanding.
