A couple who dream of becoming parents have decided to undergo weight loss surgery - because they're too fat to have sex.
The lovebirds, who have been married since 2010, have a combined weight of 63 stone.
Lin Yue and his wife Deng Yang reveal that married life had been difficult right from the start when, they said, they could not find a wedding dress big enough for the bride and had to have one specially made.
The couple, who are both 30, describe themselves as being as wide as they are tall.
The pair who both work in south-west China’s Sichuan Province this week travelled to Changchun, capital of north-eastern Jilin Province, in order to undergo treatment for rapid weight loss.
They hope gastric bypass surgery will help them in their fight against morbid obesity, which they have now decided to tackle in order to one day have a child .
Deng said the dream of becoming a parent alone was enough for them to want to try to lose weight.
But they said they were inspired to take the step together after reading about a woman known as the heaviest person in China, who last month also underwent a gastric bypass to help her fight obesity.
