I think they know exactly what they're doing ... Making them so big they become entirely dependent on them, and they become less attractive to others but more attractive to them. It's a form of control. Notice how they weren't overweight themselves.

And the guys who encourage this are disgusting, they don't realise what they are doing.
In the case of the son, his mother has probably piled so much guilt on him that he feels unable to leave, and she would make his life hell if he didn't give into her demands for food. But he does still hold some responsibility for giving that much to her.
