i am curious. there seems to be a glut of television sitcoms in which very pretty women are married to unprepossessing (and that's putting it kindly) men. it's not all that uncommon in movies either, and now that i've started to watch anime i see some of it there as well.

but the reverse: ugly woman hooks up with hot (and nice) guy -- so uncommon that i can't think of an example off the top of my hat. and i don't mean "ugly" as jeaneane garofalo in the truth about cats and dogs; that's hollywood-ugly -- somebody who actually thinks JG ugly is flying blind. i'm talking the equivalent of those unprepossessing husbands, somebody commonly perceived as not the greatest catch in the looks department. and yes, i know "ugly" seems to ever so frequently translate to "fat", and i hate it. but since fat is commonly perceived as ugly, any tv show or movie or anime that portrays the ugly girl as fat counts for the purpose of this post.

so, does anyone have examples?
