He wasn’t even able to be intimate with his wife, Nissa and she felt like nothing more than his slave. “Marriage is extremely difficult when you’re married to somebody who is 600 pounds. We don’t have an intimate relationship, our marriage is much more ‘caregiver-patient.’ I just feel like a servant.” Saying that “being a single mom is one thing, but being a single mom when there’s another human being there is much harder.” Nissa explained. Chucked wanted desperately to make his marriage work, especially after the fact that he lost his beloved first wife to a senseless murder.
